"Anyone who is anybody should read this book, it's thoughtful, adventurous and perfect for young readers." Ida Bralower age 8.
"If you like adventures, large or small, then you would love this book!" Viviana Pearl Castle-Messenger age 8
"I think my dog should read this book, because he asks a lot of questions." Ruby Bryson- Beane age 8
"The Curious Little Snail is an educator’s delight! Young’s dazzling illustrations of Serena the snail and her surroundings draw readers into the thoughtful and beautiful world of snails. It is easy to slime along with Serena and adopt her youthful, wondrous perspective of the world. Young reflects children’s capacity for questioning, encouraging adults and children alike to slow down and take a closer look at our surroundings. As a 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade teacher, I highly recommend this book. Young provides resources for educators and parents in the back of the book which helped me launch a conversation with my 4th grade students about noticing and questioning that which we take for granted."
Lindsay Lang M. Ed. Elementary School Teacher
"The Curious Little Snail is sweet, thoughtful, and full of wonder! The author does a great job of bringing the reader along on a snail’s paced adventure that will get kids laughing, thinking, and questioning alongside Serena the snail. A small snail with a big message, Serena is the perfect heroine to encourage kids to use scientific reasoning to think about the world around them. Perfect for environmental educators, classroom teachers, and anyone with an adventurous kid in their lives The Curious Little Snail wants you to join her on the next BIG ADVENTURE!"
Katherine Rose Taulbee M. Ed. 1st grade teacher and environmental educator
"A tiny snail asking big questions about the forest around her. Children will love the story and beautiful illustrations. Parents and teachers will find important strategies for slowing down and supporting a young learner’s curiosity in nature. Ashley Young’s, The Curious Little Snail, should not be kept next to the bed, but rather be brought outdoors as preparation for outdoor adventures."
