Texas Snakes @ the Library

* Tickets required

Snakes in the library? You bet!  This is a great opportunity for children to learn why we need snakes in our environment and what to do if they see a snake.

According to Texas A & M University, "The great state of Texas is home to 37 different species of snakes, and
surprisingly, only four of those are venomous."

Early readers are specifically formatted to assist children with their understanding of the written word. Unfortunately, as a collective whole, publishers do not have a universal system for leveling books.
