In this book, Slinky the Snake reveals how readers should go about choosing a pet snake, what supplies they will need, how to make a new snake feel at home, and how to properly care for a pet snake, including feeding, exercising, and keeping a snake vivarium clean. Text is accompanied by clear, labeled photographs to further reinforce key concepts, and the use of an animal narrator also allows the book to be used to teach perspective.
