Lady picks up baby rattlesnake
Baby Rattlesnake by Te AtaBaby Rattlesnake longs for a rattle in this retelling of a Native American folktale, refusing to be comforted by the assurances of his parents, his siblings, and the Rattlesnake People that he will grow into one. Finally, fed up with his constant crying, his people give him what he wants, but his irresponsible use of the rattle leads to disaster...

The illustrations by Mira Reisberg are colorful, and rather cartoon-like. A brief but entertaining little book, perfect for young readers with an interest in Native American folklore, although I do wish that the specific origin of the tale had been discussed - should I assume it is Chickesaw, because Ata was?
