Snake meets farm in this month’s Reading with Friends book

A class field trip to a local farm sounds like a pretty nice time … that is until one of the kids sneaks in his pet snake — a giant boa constrictor!

Find out more about this zany trip during October’s Reading with Friends, where the book of the month will be “The Day Jimmy’s Boa Ate the Wash” by Trinka Hakes Noble with illustrations by Steven Kellogg.

What starts as a ho-hum visit to a farm ends in a wild free-for-all when Jimmy’s pet boa constrictor decides to mingle with barnyard society. The book will be read by special guest reader Sister Jodi Creten.

Story time will begin at 10 a.m. Friday, Oct. 11 at Neighbor to Neighbor.

The story times for children 3 to 5 years old are on the second Fridays of the month and all begin at 10 a.m. at Neighbor to Neighbor, 103 E. Sixth St. Each session includes playtime and a snack for the children, plus each child will receive a free copy of that day’s book to take home.

There is a limit of 30 children per session so parents must register in advance. Call Neighbor to Neighbor at 785/262-4215 or email

The monthly program has been a part of Neighbor to Neighbor’s regular offerings since September 2012.
