Sidney Snail wanted an adventure. He grumbled to his friend Old Samuel about not having anything to do. Old Samuel tells Sidney to look around, there are plenty of big adventures right near his home. Sidney is skeptical but decides to look around. This is such a terrific way to encourage your child's imagination. Well written and adorable characters make this a fun read. Your child will love learning what Sidney notices during his adventure. A perfect starting point to spend time with your child. Perfect gift for Easter. I found no issues. I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because it's a wonderful story. ~Copy of book provided by author and I voluntarily reviewed it.
Reviewed by Rosie Malezer for Readers' Favorite What’s at the End of Your Nose? is a children’s book from A Slipperyville Tale series, written by Becky Benishek and illustrated by Kelly Cline. Bored out of his mind, Sidney Snail is ready to skip town and find some adventure outside of Slipperyville. As he is about to leave, Old Samuel Snail suggests to Sidney that he first explore what is at the end of his nose. This gives Sidney pause for thought, and he postpones his faraway explorations, opting to explore his local area first. While floating on a leaf in a nearby creek, Sidney’s eyes are opened to amazing, fun-filled things to see and do, which he had never noticed before, making exciting new friends at the same time. Becky Benishek’s astonishing tale of a bored snail, who fails to see the beauty and excitement in the world around him until he truly opens his eyes, is one filled with smiles and excitement from beginning to end. Written from the point of view of a snail, the story encourages readers to go out and explore up close what is right there, at the ends of their noses, instead of complaining and becoming so easily bored. Doing so not only shines a spotlight on the beauty of your natural surroundings, once you open your eyes and truly see it, but also enables you to make new friends without trying too hard. I found the story to be filled with fun and excitement, having opened my own eyes to my surroundings in the past, due to boredom, and finding hidden gems in my own surrounds. I recommend What’s at the End of Your Nose? not only to children, but to people of all ages who feel they have been bitten by the travel bug, when it is simply sheer boredom at what they fail to see in their own back yard that has willed them to be elsewhere.
