Summary: As the title suggests, this book contains three brief stories about Snail and Worm, who find each other and become friends in the first tale. The vocabulary and humor are perfect for beginning readers. Each friend gets his/her own colored font to make it easy to keep track of the dialog. The back cover says to look for more Snail & Worm adventures coming soon. 32 pages; grades PreK-1.
Pros: An excellent choice for either a read-aloud or a first independent reader. Kids will get a chuckle from both the cute, cartoon-style illustrations and the text.
Cons: While five-year-olds will find the humor just right, it’s not quite up to Elephant & Piggie standards.
