Children's Book #Review and #Giveaway: Sneaky Snake CLOSED

Wednesday, August 03, 2011 Posted by Dina N

Sneaky Snake by Melissa Utz Taylor is a children's book that teaches the importance of having friends. Here is what the author says about her book:

The goal when trying to teach children is to make it interesting and above all, lots of fun. From children to adults, having good friends is an important part of who we are. In the story of Sneaky Snake I used basic animals to teach children about the importance of friendship. My point is as simple as just being nice to others, is being a good friend. 

Sneaky Snake tells the story of a grumpy snake who hisses at everyone. He scares away all the animals who try to be friends with him, except for Owl. Wise Owl watches everything from his tree above Sneaky Snake's rock. Then one day, when the snake gets stuck between the rocks, he begs Owl for help. Wise Owl helps him, teaching him a good lesson: if Snake was not so mean to everyone, he would have friends to help him when he needed it. Sneaky Snake apologizes to all the animals and learns that having lost of friends is something to be proud of.

My kids enjoyed Sneaky Snake's story. The book features charming illustrations and simple wording that makes it easy for children to understand and eventually read on their own. Although the recommended age is 9-12, I believe that even younger kids will find the book interesting.

Sneaky Snake is available on Amazon and AuthorHouse.
