About this title

Synopsis:

On a cool fall day, a timber rattlesnake slithers into a small hole on the side of a rocky hill. The underground den is packed with hundreds of snakes lying on top of each other. The snakes will stay here for months, hibernating until spring arrives. In this dramatic and colorful book, beginning readers will learn all about where timber rattlesnakes go in the winter and the amazing ways they surviveincluding not eating for several months. Each 24-page book features controlled text with age-appropriate vocabulary and simple sentence construction. The lively text, colorful design, and exquisite photos are sure to delight and engage emergent readers.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 1-3-Focusing on animal behaviors in winter, each title examines hibernation or migration from fall to spring. Three to four large-type sentences per spread, supplemented by fact boxes, should be easy for young readers to navigate. The basic vocabulary limits the excitement level of the text, so the books are most engaging when the content is especially amazing, such as when the author emphasizes the wood frog's frozen hibernation. Most highlighted features relate directly to the animal's winter habits, so readers learn about the little barn owl's hooked claws but not about more general subjects, such as echolocation. Many spreads feature a large photograph, with occasional captioned insets. Though the majority of the images are of decent quality, the impact is sometimes limited. We learn that barn swallows migrate in groups, for example, but we don't see any flocks flying South. Range maps and a closing list of facts round out these solid and simple introductions.α(c) Copyright 2014. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
