The Snail and the Whale

snail on a whale

A snail longs to see the world and hitches a lift on a whale’s tail.  Together they go on an amazing journey, past icebergs and volcanoes, sharks and penguins, and the snail feels very small in the vastness of the world.  But when the whale is beached in a bay, it’s the tiny snail who saves the day.

This is such an engaging story with a powerful message.  It tells us that no matter how small or insignificant a person may think they are, a little bit of effort and determination can make anything possible.

After sharing the story we created our own whale using paper cut outs.  See if you can spot the snail on the whale’s tail…..
