The Snail and the Whale.
I picked up this book in a charity shop a few weeks ago knowing that we like the Donaldson-Sheffler team. It seemed a little old for my kids to understand, but they could grow into it.
I put it on the shelf without any announcement. My son found it this week and we have been reading it regularly ever since.
This is a sweet story of a little snail who takes a tour of the world with a whale. It is beautiful, but it makes the snail feel so small and insignificant. Then trouble happens and it is up to the snail to save the day. Can a little snail really make a difference?
In true Donaldson fashion, this story is told in sing-song rhyme with beautiful illustrations by Axel Scheffler (who also illustrated The Gruffalo, written by Julia Donaldson).
This week, Vanessa at Silly Eagle Books is hosting Feed Me Books Friday. (normally hosted by The Adventure of Motherhood).
