What You’ll Love About This Book : This story is written by Julia Donaldson who is known as an award-winning and much-loved UK children’s author and her collaboration with equally talented Axel Scheffler, who achieved worldwide acclaim for his illustrations, and his books have been translated into over 27 languages.The duo made it such a beautiful and memorable both visually and verbally.Containing beautiful illustrations and featuring Donaldson’s trademark hypnotic rhyming The Snail and the Whale will delight children between the ages of 3 and 8. Travel, adventure, friendship and kindness are the book’s main themes within a nautical tale that sounds best when read out aloud.It allows for participation in the reading process and is a great book for working on sounding out different words with children. The vocabulary occasionally require explanation, however it all helps to broaden little minds as well.
A beautiful addition to a little one’s library.
