What Wee Read
The Snail and the Whale by Julia Donaldson
This rhyming, lyrical story is a hit with our preschoolers. A tiny, curious snail hops aboard the tail of a humpback whale to sail the sea. On their adventure, the snail sees icebergs, mountains, underwater caves and golden sands – and is amazed by it all. "I feel so small," she told the whale. Amidst the excitement, the whale finds himself beached in a bay, so the snail sets off to save his friend. All ends well, showing that even the littlest creature can be a huge help. Hooray!
