This is a good book. The book is about courage and to believe in yourself. A very positive subject for school age children or anyone. The author captures the essence of the subject of teasing/bully. How a teaser/bully changed for the better, and the beginning of a new friendship. There are wonderful characters. Illustrations are well drawn with vibrant colors. Recommend for any school library.
This is a great story for all ages. Wonderful characters created. A story about courage and believing in yourself.
I really like Slinkie the Courageous Snail. My favorite character is Slinkie, he reminded me of a time when I was in kindergarden when I was trying to find my way back to my classroom when I noticed that the halls looked the same. I felt the same way Slinkie did when he got lost in the woods. I think this book is perfect for anyone who is feeling a little lost at times.. Ms. Buzz the butterfly remined me of my first grade teacher Mrs. McCoy she was the best teacher I ever had. It perked me up when I read it and I highly recommened it to anyone who likes bright colors and insects.
