118. Snail and Worm All Day


Snail and Worm All Day: Three Stories About Two Friends. Tina Kugler. 2019. 32 pages. [Source: Review copy]

First sentence: Hello! Hi! Guess what? It's the best day ever!

Premise/plot: Snail and Worm All Day contains three stories starring Snail and Worm. Best Day Ever reveals that Snail may just be an optimist--maybe. He may be having a not-so-great-day (he can't find his shoes) but everyone else is having a great day and that makes Snail very happy indeed (especially when he remembers he doesn't even wear shoes). The Spooky Cave is an adventure where Snail and Worm face the dangers--do they really???--of a dragon in a cave. Will they survive long enough to make it to nap time? In the third story, A Bedtime Story, the two work together to create a bedtime story. 

My thoughts: I really enjoyed this one. This is the third book--so far--in the series. I am definitely getting attached to the characters and this series. I love that the story relies so heavily on the illustrations. These are very funny stories--but only if you look past the text and find out what is really going on!!!
