Each page of the book features a scientific illustration of a snake accompanied by a narrative description of a typical day-in-the-life for that snake, based on research. When you click on the text, you hear an auditory recording of the author reading aloud his or her work, with a separate audio track of sound effects, and a track of music played by the students. This project has inspired classrooms across the country to create similar eBooks based on different animals.

This book followed another snake-themed project: a student- created music video, Snakes Are Born This Way, viewed online over 40,000 times.
