Dewey Discoveries: “Snails are Just My Speed!” by Kevin McCloskey

I bet you didn’t know that snails are pretty cool.

They’re not just slimy little critters that live in funny shells--they’re amazing insects that have teeth on their tongues, the ability to make lots of slime, and they can also rebuild their shells if they’re broken! You can learn these facts and more in Kevin McCloskey’s fantastic new book, “Snails are Just My Speed!”. With engaging comics and interesting facts on each page, any reader will be interested in snails by the end of the book. Perfect for pre-readers and beginning readers.
