SNAKES by Nic Bishop. 2012. 48p. ISBN 9780545206389
Bishop offers a book on snakes, and while the text delivers this it's really the stunning photographs that make the book so engaging. The writing is a bit basic, but that just directs it toward younger children.  The pictures are entrancing and there are some good tidbits, trivia, and quotes on varying subjects related to snakes. Bishop has a long list of nonfiction books for children - all with outstanding photographs.
