It's one thing when a dog or cat gets loose, but what happens when a pet boa constrictor can't be found? The characters in the featured book in Reading Rainbow: The Day Jimmy's Boa Ate the Wash get quite upset when Jimmy's snake disappears. Host LeVar Burton comes face to face with a boa constrictor and a tarantula when he visits a pet shop. At a livestock exhibition, he experiences the shearing of a sheep and other farm animal activities. Among the books reviewed by the kids are Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by Judith Viorst and Could Be Worse! by James Stevenson.
