Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 1-2. One of the Step into Reading series, Penner's book offers the attraction of reading about a nonbabyish topic in an easy-to-read format. There are some flaws: the illustrations are only loosely related to the text and are not given geographical context, and the generalization "Mother snakes don't take care of their babies" is made to seem a "character" flaw. Still, the subject is bound to attract kids, and beginning readers will gain a sense of accomplishment from the reading as well as an increase in their knowledge of the subject.
