I learned some more about rattlesnakes that I didn't already know about them. I think it needs a little more specific details.

Learning book! Rattlesnakes live in Southern Canada, to the US, to Argentina, South America. They can be very poisonous. Snakes shed their skin. Their eyes get cloudy before they shed their skin. Rattlesnakes should really, really be left alone!

Who would have that that the Diamondback rattlesnake would be the most fearsome rattler. It is 84" long and has the most poison. My daughter loves all things snake. So naturally she would bring this book home for me to read to her. Can't wait until next week.

Guess what I'll probably dream about tonight? :)

Very informative book about rattlesnakes. Did you know that some can grow up to 84 inches long? That's no fair! I'll never get past 61!

The author did a great job combining non-fiction with descriptive language and colorful pages.
