Garter Snake atWillow Creek Lanewritten by Janet Halfmann, illustrated by Anne Wertheim
Garter Snake has been on her own since birth. She has learned important skills including how to find meals and protect herself from enemies such as crows and dogs. Now, her biggest struggle is to find a place to spend the winter months. Will she find a winter den before it gets too cold? An easy-to-download read-along audiobook with realistic sound effects is included!
My Review: This is a delightful book about Garter snakes that would intrigue children of all ages. Author Janet Halfmann did a great job using fictional story to describe the habits and habitats of the Garter snakes. Do you know that after the mother Garter has given birth to move than 12 Garter snakes she moves on after just spend up to two days with the snakelings? The snakelings are then left to fend for themselves. They feed on earthworms, insects, snails, slugs in the garden. After a few weeks, the Garter snakes rub their faces on rocks to tear or shed their old shin. To protect themselves they can squirts musk from an opening near their tail. The liquid’s foul odor and icky taste usually make animals leave them alone. And during the month of October, they like to look for a warm place where they wouldn’t freeze during the winter. I don’t like snakes but I enjoyed reading this book. I highly recommend this book for classroom teaching and school libraries.
