Selected for The Children's Book Council's June 2023 "Hot Off The Press" Reading List A gentle story about a little snail called Henry who was born without slime and therefore will never be like everyone else.When Henry finds out he is missing the most important element for snails--their slime--giving up is not an option for him. He tries to find ways to be able to climb things just as the other snails do. He struggles a bit before he finds the right solution, but in the end, he becomes the inspiration for his fellow snails and makes a lot of friends along the way, teaching us that far from being an obstacle, a difference may prove to be the key that opens new horizons.Using a simple story and a sympathetic hero the kids learn social-emotional skills and are better prepared to cope with everyday life situations.
