We received this book via NetGalley to give an honest review.

I saw this book while browsing and figured that A would like to have this book read to her. She is always wanting to learn something new so this was perfect for her. Not only is this a story it is also informational about rattlesnakes.

Mother snake is teaching her snakes the rules of being a rattlesnake and tips to help them stay out of trouble. With these rules, it makes it easy for kids to learn about them such as what they look like

Very informative book about rattlesnakes. The rules are informative and explain to the reader both why rattlesnakes behave the way they do and what people should do if they see a rattlesnake. I personally love the end of the book, which listed a lot of interesting facts that would be perfect for a book or animal report!
The illustrations are done beautifully and match the “rules” that are being talked about on the page.
I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for a fair review.

This was an interesting book that allowed young readers to get a step into a rattlesnake's world via the eyes of a snake. Although I am sure mama rattlers don't teach their young this one did while helping readers to get to know these much misunderstood snakes as she led all through the lessons.

The story was given in a poetic style that was brief and fun. Although there were spots where the poetic flow seemed stilted a bit the rest of it flowed pretty nicely.

Another thing that bothered me was

Told in rhyming stanzas, this book starts by showing off how different animals have different rules before settling into the one in the title.
Using pictographs and a bell she holds in her rattle tail, momma snake—she’s wearing a necklace though she has no shoulders—teaches the little ones all about livin’ the reptile life. There’s rules for humans too, but only one seems to be important: leave the rattlers alone!
I can just imagine a kid asking, “Mom, what does ‘Ace of Spades” mean?”

Rattlesnake Rules by Conrad J. Storad is a children's non fiction picturebook. Rattlesnakes have rules?! If these babies shake their rattles, you had better pay attention! Misunderstood, rattlesnakes have gotten a bad rap over the years. This book demystifies the world of rattlesnakes and introduces children to such topics as who, when, and what rattlesnakes eat. It shows readers why rattlesnakes have rattles and what it means if you hear one. You will learn how the snakes forked tongues help th ...more
