    Students at Coventry Village School were giddy with excitement the day Grannie Snow arrived to read to them, and discuss the art of writing and publishing children’s books. The students had read the first few books in The Silas Series and were hooked! These books are not only engaging for content, rhyme and illustrations, but powerful in the descriptions of empathy. Grannie discussed the emotions of grief, hope and happiness with students. Her relaxed, honest and enthusiastic demeanor allowed students to discuss these topics openly. She also opened our eyes to the tasks of self-publishing. Grannie met with individual age groups, pre-K-6th grade, and had students sitting on the edge of their seats, participating in rich conversation, asking thoughtful questions, making personal connections… What more could you ask for?

    The “Silas Series” is, fortunately, continuing onward to book number five. Each story is unique and holds your attention as Silas, Opal and Grannie Snow encounter little challenges in their lives. This book might be my favorite because of the humorous little crisis for the cats, and Grannie’s attempts to cope with them. As a cat caretaker, I sure know her anxiety over some incidents and laughed out loud! It’s a funny book, suspenseful and, as always, written in rhyme. The illustrations are first rate. Oh, such adorable cats and such terrific facial expressions on them! There is not a child alive, in my humble opinion, who would not enjoy reading about the latest happenings with Silas and Opal, and there are few pet parents who would not identify with Grannie.
