Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Its a marvel! Every time you turn the page the little snake grows bigger. And its a book that teaches colors: with every page his spots change color. Amazing! But how does it work???

Using a unique Magic Ribbon format invented by the authors, The Splendid Spotted Snake follows the adventures of a little spotted snake made out of sturdy, polka-dotted cloth ribbon.

When Yellow Snake was born,
he had bright red spots.
But then he grew . . .
His new spots were blue.


Not only does the little snake double in size, his spots also change color!

Red to blue to purple to orange and more, its an enchanting lesson in learning colors. And for little kids and parents alike, a true page-turner—because with every turn of the page the little snake grows and changes.

And look for it: a wonderful, gratifying surprise ending.

Review:

"A yellow snake, made from a ribbon that is woven through slots in the pages, is born with red spots, but as he gets longer, he gains additional spots of different colors. As in Schwartz's What Makes a Rainbow? which used the same format, turning the pages pulls a new section of ribbon through, making the winding snake grow. Schwartz and Wilensky combine a satisfying tactile experience with a lighthearted lesson on size and color recognition, well-suited for preschoolers. Ages 3 — up."
