Poorly written. Looks like the authors Google searched "snakes" and copy-pasted the first things that came up. Pg. 5 - Photo is not of a snake but rather a legless lizard and is much larger than the crayon the page clams it is the size of. Pg. 8 - There are snake species that inhabit very cold places as well. Pg. 23-24 - While it's true, some snakes are brightly colored to serve as a warning to predators that it is venomous, such as a Coral snake, the photos are of corn snakes, totally harmless. Their natural coloration actually does serve as excellent camouflage unlike what the book claims. The bright colored one on pg 24 is of a mutation that is generally only found in captivity. It is brightly colored because of a lack of black pigment, not because it is warning predators that it is venomous. Pg 26 - Deceptive. Photo is of a birds next. While some snakes do lay in "nests", they are nothing like a birds nest. Might seem picky, but it is not that hard these days to make sure you have accurate information in a simple kids book. All the ARC Press books I've seen so far are similarly poorly done, slapped together with random poor quality or poorly edited photos that look like there were randomly pulled of the internet often with inaccurate captions. Judging by the fact this company has no place to review them or their products makes me think they know they produce poor quality products.
