Snakes! Learn About Snakes and Enjoy Colorful Pictures - Look and Learn!

Snakes! Learn About Snakes and Enjoy Colorful Pictures - Look and Learn! (50+ Photos of Snakes) - Becky Wolff

2.5 Stars, don’t bother

 

One of my new year reading goals is to try to finish reviewing all of these Look and Learns that I got for free from Amazon.  Work and life got really hectic during December so I hope with the new year, I will be able to find some more time to reviewing these. In any case, at this point, i’m just going through them in order and snakes came up next. I’m not particularly interested in them.

 

Pictures are pretty small and hard to see. I’ve found some contradictory information. In one place the book says there are more than 3000 species of snakes. In another place it says there are more than 2,700 species of snakes. Which one is it? Did anyone bother to edit these?  Also most of the facts in this is pretty common knowledge so there really isn’t anything new in this. Overall pretty boring. Doesn’t help I don’t like snakes much.
