Baby Rattlesnake cries and cries for a rattle just like his big brother and sister have, but his parents tell him he s still too young. His crying keeps the Rattlesnake People up all night, so finally his parents give in. Thrilled with his new power, he mischievously uses his rattle to scare little animals. He grows bolder and bolder, till one day he scares the wrong creature. Adapted from a Chickasaw tale, this English-only version of this story-time favorite provides a witty lesson in the value of self-control that all young readers can relate to. Mira Reisberg s appealing illustrations vividly depict the story Southwestern setting.
