The Snail and the Whale

This month we looked at another fantastic tale from Julia Donaldson with great illustrations from Axel Scheffler; The Snail and the Whale. It’s seems very fitting to tell stories about the sea, as you can see by the photo below, is taken from the window of the library.

Here are some more photos of the session and also some pictures that the children illustrated.

The sea snail slithered all over the rock.

And gazed at the sea and the ships in the dock.

And as she gazed she sniffed and sighed.

“The sea is deep and the world is wide!

How I long to sail!”

Said the tiny snail.
