January 21st – COSTA RICA – My brother needs a boa

20150121_212317 (1)

From a very heavy read in Suriname we are whisked away to the rainforest of Costa Rica by Anne Weston and her fun tale of a store owner and a problem only the right snake can remedy. Rainforest life looks idyllic, though the children were curious about the rather different attitude towards snakes (Africans tend to send them swiftly back to their Maker). The illustrations are bright and cheerful. An triple delight – interesting story, illuminating a different culture with great illustrations.
