Kids love space and rocks, diggers and hard hats, trains and more. So why not throw some brightly colored snakes into the mix and take them for a silly ride fully of fun imagery, hissing, and more?
Snakes in Space follows on the heels of Kathryn Dennis’s earlier books, Snakes on a Train and Snakes on the Job. The snakes find themselves blasting off on a wild ride through space. They take space “walks,” eat astronaut food, and leave snake prints on the moon. The book is great to introduce young readers to space terms and themes – as long as they don’t mind snakes!
While I thought these would be pretty simplistic for my six year old she actually really enjoyed them. I don’t know if it was the silly situations the snakes found themselves in (she frequently reminded me that this was just a book) or the illustrations but she liked them all! These would be great for two to four year olds with a love of bright colors, snakes, and silly sounds (there’s a lot of hissing). If I were still doing library story times, I would definitely grab one of these for the toddler crowd!
