Great book for helping kids stay safer in snake-prone areas. Lots of additional scientific info that older kids might especially enjoy.

I send these little stories about desert critters to my Godson who lives in London, England. I was bitten by a rattlesnake last year. He was a little frightened when he heard of the accident, so I sent this book. Seemed to make him feel a little better. That and knowing I survived the ordeal.

Storad wrote another winner. Thanks for the great books about critters in our neck of the woods. Munchkin thinks this book is a good - but not scary - guide to what to do with Rattlesnakes around.

I ordered this book and didn't check the product dimensions. It was a much smaller picture book than I usually use in the classroom with my students. I am very disappointed that it's so small in size, since students need a large picture book to see the pictures during a read aloud. It was just as expensive as the normal size ones. Why didn't the publishers do this author justice by creating a normal-sized picture book for the classroom? Next time, I'll be sure to check the size!

I don't usually write reviews but this book is so cute I felt compelled to comment on it. I bought it for my nephew for Christmas and it surpassed my expectations. Not only does it show empathy for snakes which most people dislike, but it gives information about them in an entertaining way. It's really an adorable book and I highly recommend it.

This is a book to teach kids all about rattlesnakes. The author and artist reveal many facts about the creatures that kids should know. The writing is simple and the art adds to the pieces about these reptiles. There are also facts that are told at the end of the book for all ages to learn.

It's great to see more books out there of interest to boys. Our literacy program (Literacy Link - Leamos) is always looking for books to give to the children in our area and all of Conrad's books are great for this type of thing. Keep up the great work - - love the artwork!

Have you ever seen a rattlesnake? Have you ever heard one rattle? Rattlesnakes have gotten a bad reputation over the years, mostly because they are misunderstood. Yes, they do pose a hazard to people, but they are part of God's creation and serve a useful purpose, part of which is eating rats and mice which can carry diseases harmful to humans. Author Conrad J. Storad, a long time resident of the Sonoran Desert in Arizona, helps children learn more about these fascinating creatures by presenting in poetic form what a mother rattlesnake might tell her young ones about rules for hunting, eating, and warning, and also rules for humans to keep safe. The eye-catching illustrations by Nathaniel P. Jensen, which remind me of Disney snakes like Kaa of The Jungle Book and Sir Hiss of Robin Hood, help to bring the book alive. Can you guess what a rattlesnake uses its forked tongue for?

Storad, a journalist, has long been fascinated by the diversity of plants and animals that live in the desert. Among his previous 32 science and nature books are Meerkats, the Arizona Book Publishing Association's "Arizona Best Book of 2008;" Don't Call Me a Pig! (A Javelina Story); Desert Night Shift (A Pack Rat Story); Lizards for Lunch (A Roadrunner's Story); and Don't Ever Cross That Road (An Armadillo Story). The back of Rattlesnake Rules contains several pages of "Rattlesnake Fast Facts," "Rattlesnake Fun Facts," "Rattlesnake Mysteries," "Rattlesnake Myths Vs. Facts," "Words to Learn," and a useful "Rattlesnake Rules Curriculum Guide" provided by librarian and teacher Jean Kilker with suggested activities that will help parents and teachers reinforce the material in the book. This is a really neat and fun book that should prove to be a good resource in children's science reading. Some parents will want to know that there is one reference which says, "Scientists think that the snake's rattle evolved as a warning device."

"Rattlesnake Rules" is a handy explanatory book for children age 8-12 teaching all about rattlesnakes. Written by award-winning children's author and science editor Conrad J. Storad, "Rattlesnake Rules" comes fully illustrated with humorous paintings and also contains a fact list, glossary, and full curriculum guide written by Jean Kilker, a national Board Certified teacher and librarian in Litchfield Park, Arizona. "Rattlesnake Rules" is an excellent guide for young students to promote healthy understanding and respect for the reality of rattlesnakes and techniques and ways to help keep both rattlesnakes and humans safe.
