“The Splendid Spotted Snake”grows on you as each page turned reveals an added link to our slithery friend.  Kids love the magic ribbon technology as the smiling snake’s cloth body expands to teach a new color. The text of  simple rhyming phrases–“He grew a little more…he had green spots galore!” is a backdrop for the clever enlarging snake while turning the pages reveals a new spotted section of his body. When his growing ended , the snake looked splendid and surprise–his spots were blended! Kids as young a 2 enjoyed this book, spotting the difference on each page,  “Oh, blue tape!” and “More spot!” The magic ribbon snake was easily the highlight of the book for kids. A great choice for an interactive read-aloud for your preschooler, the growing, bumpy bright spotted snake gives readers lots to talk about and engage in with a child.  Talking about a book can be as valuable as reading it to a child to develop language that later relates to reading ability.
