Nice Book About Following Your Dreams

Once there was a little snail who loved everything round - hoops and wheels and balls and most of all, the moon. Oh, how she longed to glide gently over the moon's surface, around and around and around.
And so she made a daring decision. "I'm going to fly to the moon," she whispered into the night . . ."
This is a story about passion and promise. It's a story about the delight of discovering something wonderful right in your own backyard."
When I first began reading this delightful little book, I thought it would end up being another book about a particular shape. It is about things that are round, but it also about dreaming and following those dreams as well.
What I liked about the book: The illustrations are beautiful. They are full of soft pictures that make it easy for students to point out all things round. I also like that Clementine is not afraid to follow her dream. The story has a nice message about not giving up as well as one about discovering the unexpected close to home. The text in this book is a little longer than that found in most picture books, but it fits well with the story. Teachers of young students will appreciate the educational notes at the end.
What I didn't like about the book: I liked it all!
Recommended for Pre-K through 1st Grade
