Our book of the month is The Snail and the Whale by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler and it is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year. The Snail and the Whale is our number one searched-for book and activity page and so an obvious choice for our 3rd anniversary book of the month.
The story is about a very tiny snail seeking adventure who sails around the world balanced on the tail of a huge, humpback whale. The story and pictures describe their travels past icebergs, volcanoes, islands and coral caves, until the whale loses its way and becomes beached on land. The tiny snail decides she needs to help. This is a story which suggests however small you are and however big the world is you can make a difference. There is lots to look at in the varied landscapes and the humour and rhyme make this a great book for reading aloud and re reading.
