Book Recommendation Friday
Last year the first book I read to my class was We Can't All Be Rattlesnakes by Patrick Jennings. You might not expect to be inspired by a book whose main character is a female gopher snake named Crusher, but I and my students really enjoyed the creative descriptions of the world from a snakes perspective.
I think this book is a great example of perspective and descriptive language. It also has strong themes about family and relationships.
