The Splendid Spotted Snake Book Review

Just recently we had the chance to review a few books from our friends at Thomas Allen & Sons Ltd. One of the books in the pack was The Splendid Spotted Snake by Betty Ann Schwartz and Alexander Wilensky.

This is a wonderful book about a small spotted snake that grows and grows. Each time the snake grows he grows a different color of spots. When the pages are turned the magic ribbon grows with another color. This is so fun for the children. They love to turn the page with the magic ribbon growing and changing spots.

The Splendid Spotted Snake is a great play on words book with its rhyming throughout the book. "When his growing finally ended...All his spots got kinda blended" It is a great book for preschoolers to learn their colors in a fun new way. I found this book to be very interactive as you read the book with your children. The new colors are introduced not in black font but the color font to help with recognition. It is also simple sentences that children can use this as an early reader book.
This book is likely one of my favorite books that we have read recently. It was a huge it with my children right from the start and we have read it over and over again. P is learning to read and he sits with the book and tries to read each page himself as he checks out the snake growing new spots.
