Full Disclosure, again: I finally got my book, and I love it! So will teachers, parents, and kids! Baby Rattlesnake throws a temper tantrum that’s so loud that his tribe gives in. My favorite part…an elder says let him have his rattle. He’ll get into trouble, learn a lesson, and everyone else can sleep.
That’s exactly what happens! Baby picks the wrong human, the chief’s daughter. She lets Baby have it, and he goes home crying. Hopefully, lesson learned! I LOVE this story, and Mira’s pictures…GORGEOUS! I hope you check out this book and her illustrations.
Whenever I read or write, I find a comfy chair with a great view. I get my favorite drink, stretch out, and let the words take me away.
