This book is about the Mamba snakes. There are three different kinds of Mamba snakes. The Black Mamba is the second longest poisonous snake. Mambas are also the fastest snakes that can travel up to 12.5 mph. A bite from a Black Mamba can kill as many as twenty people. You can die from a bite within as little as twenty minutes. The book gives lots of interesting facts throughout the text. It also gives bubbles of interesting facts under each picture.

I enjoyed this book. It has bright, colorful photographs of the snakes. It also gives very interesting facts about the snakes. The author uses comparison to compare hard to understand facts with everyday knowledge. When the author does this it made me stop and think wow, that is scary!

This would be an excellent book to use with a snake unit. The students could participate in a classroom discussion about the differences and similarities within the different types of Mamba snakes. The students could also draw their favorite Mamba and write their favorite three interesting facts that they learned with their drawing. ( )
