    We love the Gail Gibbons books so much we have all the notebook companions. Never did I think we would be learning about snakes. This was such a valuable book for our homeschool curriculum. I have been fearful of snakes my whole life, teaching my children about snakes really taught them they are nothing to be feared. The book does a great job of educating a child about snakes in a positive light. I loved the sections to draw/color snakes in the notebook companion. The information follows along with the book wonderfully. The coloring pages were a favorite for the kids!

    The book “Snakes” by Gail Gibbons is easy enough to read through in one sitting but has multiple levels of information that can be enjoyed by many age groups. Both my daughter (8) and my son (3) were engaged by the detailed-watercolor illustrations and we had lively discussions about where snakes live, how they kill their prey, and the differences between venomous and nonvenomous snakes.

    The Learning About Snakes notebooking pages required my daughter to recall some of the facts we had read about and to go back to the book to look up the ones she didn’t remember. I thought this was great because we don’t use textbooks in our homeschool, so she hasn’t had a lot of opportunities to develop this skill yet. The notebooking pages also have the student draw some of the specific snakes and give a description. I delighted in seeing my daughter open the book and use the illustrations as a reference, making an effort to be accurate. The best part was that she didn’t seem to notice that she was doing ”school work” and I didn’t get the sighs or complaints that often accompany copywork and other similar activities. We did 2 of the 58 sheets and counted science done for the day.

    The notebooking pages also include some fun coloring pages so my youngest learner was able to participate, too.

    I have always avoided the “snake” part in the encyclopedia because just looking at pictures of them makes me squeamish! I guess this notebook companion and notebook is for the budding herpetologist. Your child will learn all about snakes–how they move, their habitat, and the different kinds. There is also the “fun facts” section where your child can draw more about them. I appreciate the “note to parents” included in the first few pages about parts we might want to skip over. I love how this animal is presented in the book–a good way to learn about this often misunderstood/feared reptile in a friendly/scientific setting.
