Kindergarten-Grade 2-In this Southwestern folktale, timid snake gets his rattle, thus becoming more courageous and a better athlete. While the simple sentence structure and easy vocabulary make the book attractive to beginning readers, the text is bland. The artwork is done in pale desert colors that lack vitality. Marguerite Davol's How Snake Got His Hiss (Orchard, 1996) is a strong, bright original tale that is exciting to read aloud and alone. With the number of high-quality folktale retellings published today, this one is expendable.
