Silly Snake Rhymes…and the real stuff
(Children’s Book) by Rod Connell
A perfect blend of fun and fact,
Designed to tickle and attract!
Mankind’s serpent fascination
In cartoon and education…
To see how the silliness ends,
Come, let’s join our wriggling friends!
“Silly Snake Rhymes” is slithery fun for children and the adults who read these funny poems aloud to them. Whether you love snakes already or aren’t quite sure, you will love them by the time you finish this book of funny, light verse and humorous illustrations. By the time readers have warmed up to the snakes, the “real stuff” offers scientific information about each species cited in the poems.
-Linda Chapman, VP of Academic Affairs, Lewis and Clark
“Silly Snake Rhymes” is a poetry book with witty word play and clever drawings. From Wanda the anaconda who loves riding a Honda to Elvis the king cobra with a pierced fang, every page is a delight. The book was created as a collaboration between a grandfather and his grandson, and its appeal, quite literally, will span the generations.
