McCloskey, Kevin. Snails Are Just My Speed! (Giggle and Learn Series). Toon Books, 2018. Unpaged. $12.95. ISBN 9781943145270. Ages 4-8. P8Q8.
This level 1 book is full of information about snails- how they move, where they live, about their anatomy, and the different kinds of snails around the world. We learn a lot about snail mucus and what it’s good for (with a comparison of human mucus)- this will be a popular subject with many readers! The author uses a lot of humor in both the text and illustrations to make the snail an appealing subject.
VERDICT: I learned some new things from this this cute, funny, informative book, and kids and parents will like it too.
