comment Sforno on the Nachash
The Abarbanel (Abravanel) also understands that the verses are not discussing the physical/animal snake. I'm not sure how he explains the curse but it might be applicable to the Sforno's line of explanation.

comment Buying pasul arba minim or non-arba minim for your small child
@DoubleAA He learnt about lulav and esrog in gan all week, his daddy and all the big boys have them, it's a major theme of succos... I think there is a certain cultural significance that will make this more meaningful/fun for him than a bouncy ball.
