Slinky's Guide to Caring for Your Snake Library Binding – Illustrated, July 1 2014
|New from||Used from|
Purchase options and add-ons
In this book, Slinky the Snake reveals how readers should go about choosing a pet snake, what supplies they will need, how to make a new snake feel at home, and how to properly care for a pet snake, including feeding, exercising, and keeping a snake vivarium clean. Text is accompanied by clear, labeled photographs to further reinforce key concepts, and the use of an animal narrator also allows the book to be used to teach perspective.
Written from the pet's perspective, the books lead readers through the pet ownership process, offering guidance through sentences that often begin with "Don't forget..." and "Before you...." Positive features are balanced with concerns about care and behavior. . . .Useful and child-friendly introductions to pet ownership.-- "School Library Journal"

Written in , and had library ticket partially torn outReviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on November 11, 2022
Certainly not in a condition to give as a gift . Has writing in it and had a partially torn out library ticket in it , someone saw fit to sell a library book and claim it was like new !!
The book is well written with lots of facts and easy to understand care instructionsReviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on July 16, 2015
I bought this when my son decided he wanted a snake- we didn't actually get the snake, which wasn't the book's fault! The book is well written with lots of facts and easy to understand care instructions. It probably wouldn't be all you need to know about caring for your snake but it is a good foundation

Sneaky Snake FactsReviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on March 7, 2020
Perfect book to teach children about snakes. I used it with my 3-4 year olds and they loved the book. The photos are the best! I skipped some of the details for my littles but the book is very informative.
Good buyReviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on June 7, 2020
