Product Description
Written by a school teacher who had personal experience with bullying, this charming story promotes a message of peace and tolerance. Three animals misinterpret their encounters with Rattlesnake. Blue Jay is unhappy when the snake does not respond to him; yet snakes have no voice. Damselfly is offended when the snake sticks his tongue out toward her; yet snakes sense the world with their tongues. Porcupine is alarmed when the snake rattles his tail toward her; yet snakes can feel threatened too. When the animals seek help from a crow, surprising lessons are learned. In addition to teaching children not to judge a book by its cover it also offers an English Language Arts Lesson, a glossary of big words and an animal facts section. It is a wonderful addition to your home or school library.
