Was that a rattle I heard?!
Maybe it was a rattlesnake just following the rules.
Rules? Rattlesnakes have rules?
"Animals learn rules by living They have no books or schools Please pay attention to this story For even rattlesnakes have rules"

“A lot of people think snakes are creepy,” says Conrad. “Others find them scary. But when you get to know them, you’ll see how fascinating they really are!”
Learn how, what, and when rattlesnakes eat. Why they flick their tongues in and out. And why they have rattles on the ends of their tails.
Award-winning author and science editor Conrad J. Storad shares with young readers valuable information about rattlesnakes. A long-time resident of the Sonoran Desert, Conrad has always been fascinated by the animals and plants that call the desert home.

Tips on Engaging Your Young Reader Over the Summer - from Linda Radke, Publisher, Five Star Publications:
As a publisher of children's and young adult books, I am privileged to receive feedback on the impact reading good books has on young minds, and have discovered it means many different things to each of them. To some, reading is the ultimate escape. It's their ticket to a new relationship, an awesome adventure or even a journey through space and time. To others, it offers an infusion of self-esteem, confidence, hope or a chance to follow a dream. Reading generates laughter, tears, excitement, empathy, learning and much more.
During the long summer break from school, promote exercise and good food to nourish young bodies; but encourage reading to fortify strong minds and open them to new possibilities.
