The Rain Snake: A Children's Color Illustrated Book of the miracles of prayer and love
Mar 01, 2012
The Rain Snake by Jeannie Walker is a really good book. It is an excellent (true) story about relationships & faith. The story is that of a young Jeannie & her family in the midst of a prolonged drought in their homestate of Oklahoma. The story revolves around relationships & love as Jeannie wants desperately to help make it rain for he Dad. The study of relationships continue as Jeannie and Rinty try to make it rain. Their love and companionship are unmistakeable. It is also a story about faith. Jeannie's Dad has faith in God that it will rain, Jeannie has faith in the legend her Dad told her, and Jim Bledsoe had faith in believing also. It all culminates as Jeannie gathers up every ounce of courage, with the love and help of Rinty, to pick up the snake & place it, belly up, on the fence. This is a great story for kids, it teaches them that love and faith will carry the day. I can see kids reading this on their own and parents reading this to their children as a bedtime story. On a side note the author's use of quotes at the beginning of each chapter is genius. They are touching quotes that segue beautifully into the chapter.
