Sandy Richards’ picture book for children, grades K-3, Green Snakes on the Ceiling, is a marvelous resource for anyone interested in challenging kids to think creatively. Along the way, they’ll be learning that dreaded subject, grammar, in a decidedly pleasant manner. I loved how each page makes you think a bit about the relationships being presented and how they merge with the pages surrounding them. Ella Rose’s pictures work so well with the premise of this outstanding educational resource. Her animal pictures are whimsical and fun; she even makes earwigs seem a little less awful with her clever treatment of them. I’d love to see this book used for adults who are learning English as a second language or have literacy issues. Unlike many children’s books, the subject matter is presented in a way that is not childish. The issues and aspects of language presented are crucial ones for ESL learners to master. Green Snakes on the Ceiling is most highly recommended.
