In her latest book, Green Snakes on the Ceiling, award-winning writer Sandy Richards has come up with a delightful way for children to learn colors and counting, along with identifying various animals who find themselves in the weirdest situations ever! You don’t have to be a child to visualize black bears on a beach or pink flamingos on skis, but you will find yourself smiling at the ideas while your imagination takes off with such scenarios. Such crazy concepts, supported by the brilliant illustrations of Ella Rose, will have even adults thinking “what if” or “how come” while an excited child asks you how a brown cow landed in a fountain, or what would happen if you found a skunk sleeping on your bed?
If ever a book opened a treasure box of ways to stimulate children’s minds and imaginations, it’s Green Snakes on the Ceiling. And what a book for young classrooms! Every visual depicted, like tan pigs in a taxi or puppies going to school, invites children to create and/or write their own little stories based on that specific concept. If I were a primary school teacher, I couldn’t get this book into my classroom fast enough! Another thing that makes Green Snakes on the Ceiling extra good is Richards’ ability to rhyme. The entire book is a wonderful mixture of steady rhythm and naturally following rhymes. So many authors attempt to write children’s books using rhyme. So many handle that part poorly. But not Sandy Richards. Reading this book out loud provides an almost musical experience as well as a cerebral one. Bravo, Sandy Richards and Ella Rose. You make me want to pick up a pen and follow through on some of the creative story ideas you present. A thoroughly enjoyable and stimulating read for both children and adults.
