Overview

Full of sibilant sounds and other wordplay, Kathryn Dennis's picture book, Snakes on the Job, is a sssssweet story that's sure to be a read-aloud hit.

Off to work the snakes will go.
They slide into trucks and roll out slow.
Hisssssssh goes the sound of the brakes.

PreS-K—The creator of the popular Snakes on a Train is back telling another story to readers fond of her snakes. This time, the snakes are going to work on construction vehicles. Equally short and easy-to-read as its predecessor, this title continues with snake sounds of "Hisssssssssh" for the brakes. Listeners can chime in with this repeated refrain throughout. A friendly conclusion wraps up the short tale. Because the hard-hatted snakes are very simple in design in four colors, children may want to try drawing one themselves and personalizing it with a touch of originality. VERDICT Yesssssssssssssh. An excellent addition for vehicle lovers and newly independent readers. Expect to be asked for this one again and again.—Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA
