We Can’t All Be Rattlesnakes by Patrick Jennings

  Picture yourself as a snake that has just shed its skin and is curled up in a shady spot waiting for a tasty treat to come along.  Now imagine your disappointment when a lower life form- a human- comes along instead.  To make matters worse, this human knows the difference between a rattlesnake and a gopher snake and takes you home to be his pet.  We Can’t All Be Rattlesnakes is the story of Crusher, named by her new owner.  Determined not to be a pet but return to the wild, Crusher learns a lot about herself and others as she pretends to become tame in order to gain the trust of her owner and develops friendships with animals that in other circumstances would be her prey.  Her relationship with a mouse called Breakfast is especially entertaining.  Does she succeed in her goal to return to the wild?  You’ll have to read the book to find out!

*Recommended for grades 4-6

And The Winner Is ….

Rhyming Dust Bunnies by Jan Thomas was chosen by our students in grades kindergarten through third as their top choice among the North Carolina Children’s Book Award nominees.  Seems our students know how to pick ’em because Rhyming Dust Bunnies was the state winner as well.
