She decides to keep track of it and record her observations in her diary. Readers will follow along as the narrator tracks the non-venomous snake into a wooded area and finds its eggs in a tree. Later, she reports seeing the baby kingsnakes grow and shed their skin. Colorful photos, diagrams, and clear, age-appropriate text will engage young readers as they explore the life cycle, natural habitat, physical characteristics, diet, and behavior of these fascinating creatures. The diary format models scientific observation and critical thinking, and encourages children to keep notebooks recording their own investigations into the natural world.
