Pick of the Week: My Snake Blake

My Snake Blake by Randy Siegel, illustrated by Serge Bloch (Roaring Book Press, 2012)
The extremely long, bright green snake a boy receives from his father as an early birthday present proves to be incredibly smart and talented. Blake is such a great pet, the story just might make you want a pet snake! There's also a great connection to letter recognition and awareness (cursive!) in this book. Hooray for another reinforcement of early literacy skills! If this one strikes your fancy, you might take a look at the classic book, Crictor by Tomi Ungerer, for another awesome snake pet.
