Green Snakes on the Ceiling by Sandy Richards is a very well written story that is the perfect bedtime read for small children. It has a great message behind the book, which is that everyone can try different things and not be placed in one specific box. The illustrations by Ella Rose are simple but quite comical and give the creatures a unique personality each. They are also perfect for the story and the age group of the child reader. A great story that children can read along with and memorize because of the cleverly constructed rhyming format. This book teaches your child about colors, grammar,and numbers, but also to have an appreciation of nature and acceptance of others. Excellent concept and this would make a great addition to a nursery library.
