It's love at first sight when the visiting zoo man asks who at school wants to hold a snake. Me, Ali says right off--and wears the snake all day. Later Ali buys all the snakes she can at the pet store and wears them all home. For children fascinated by snakes, this is an experience to relish. For those afraid, it is a reassurance.

The Girl Who Wore Snakes Reviews
Picture Book Soak: Didn't Care ForThe girl in this story is introduced to snakes by a man who comes to her school. From then on she has an obsession with snakes and wears them absolutely everywhere she goes.The pictures in this book are all of the same thing, a little girl with snake wrapped all around her. One of the reasons that I did not really care for this book is because the story line just was not that interesting to me; I did not learn anything from it, there was not problem or solution, and snakes are not something that children should be wearing. In this area there are water moccasins and copperheads all over the place, it would be really bad for a student to go home and think it is okay to pick one up and "wear it". This story does not have a lesson that I can think of to go along with, but it would be a nice easy read for beginning readers. All of the pictures carry the same orange and yellow theme throughout the story which leads to continuity.
The Girl Who Wore Snakes is the story of a young African-American girl named Ali who discovers, after a man from the zoo comes to visit her school, that she likes to wear snakes. No can understand why she likes them so much except for one of her aunts, who explains that they remind her "of the sun and the earth and everything in between." I thought it was a cute story and I liked all the snakes, as I too have been fascinated with them since I was little.
I enjoyed the colorful pictures in this story, and the character of the girl who loves snakes. I think this is a great book for elementary school students because it shows a girl who discovers her love for snakes. This could be implemented in a lesson for students to show something they discovered they loved too.
I might have found pleasure in this book as a five-year-old but it reads awfully patronizing.
A young girl, Ali, is introduced to snakes at school and discovers throughout the book why she loves them so much.
Beautiful colors in the illustrations, a story about a girl who is a little different.
