The reviews from my students are in! For the most part, everyone liked Snakes Biggest! Littlest! by Sandra Markle. What are your favorite books about snakes? If you check out this one, come back and post your opinion too.
Snakes are a really cool reptile! They eat people whole. They can kill you when they spit venom. The snake’s tail can act like a worm and trick frogs and toads to jumping at it. Then the snake gets its prey. The pictures show a snake eating a bird, a snake that camouflaged itself in the desert, and how the snake rolls up its tongue. There isn’t anything I didn’t like about the book. I really liked all of it!
I picked this book to read because I like snakes. The author talks about the smallest and the biggest snakes. She also tells about snake parts and what they eat. This is a good book for anyone who doesn’t know about snakes, so that they can get used to snakes and maybe like them. This happened to one girl in our class. The best thing about this book is that it shows you the inside of a snake. It was cool to see the bones! I liked the whole book. There isn’t anything I disliked about this book.
The book was great! Snakes are a really cool reptile. I liked when the snakes killed stuff. For example, when a python eats a deer, it ends up with a huge belly. I like the venom. It looks cool when snakes put it into people and it comes out of their mouth. I didn’t like the snakes that ate big eggs, because it looks nasty when they throw them up. Snakes can be tricky and so watch out! Ssssss!
This is an interesting book. I learned that the snakes uses its rattle to stay safe. I liked the part when the rattlesnake uses its rattle to tell you to go away. I did not like the part where the snake ate a bat, because it is disgusting. You should read this book, because it’s cool and smart.
Snakes rock! I learned that a rattlesnake’s head looks like a bat’s face. I liked when the snake swallowed the whole deer. Poor deer! I didn’t like when the snake ate the rat. It looked yucky! This book has a lot of pictures about snakes. It even has a picture of the snake eating the deer. You should read this book. It’s good!
This book is about snakes! I learned that snakes eat to gain energy and strength. I also learned when the rattlesnake is growing and shedding its skin, its rattle grows bigger. I really liked the goblin viper because it’s green and has a cool color. I do not like the fangs that snakes have because I don’t want to get bit. You should share this book with your best friends, because it’s about the biggest and littlest snakes.
Snakes are awesome! I’ve learned so much about snakes from this book. I liked the python. I didn’t like the picture of a snake skeleton or those of snakes eating animals. I like this book, because it made me feel like a snake was right next to me. If you read this book, you will feel like you’re the snake.
This book is about different types of snakes. I like the python best. Python can eat deer. It is cool how it stretches its mouth to eat a whole deer. I didn’t the picture of the python eating a bat. It’s gross! I learned that the scales on the back of some snakes are sharp. If you read this book, you can learn lots about snakes.
Snakes are big and small. Some people love snakes; other people don’t like snakes. I don’t like snakes! You need learn about them though, because some of them are poisonous or dangerous. I didn’t like this book, because I don’t like snakes.
Our rating? Read it: Borrow from your library or a friend. It’s worth your time.
