The Book

I love this sweet story.  Henry is a tiny snail who is born with a disability.  He cannot create slime like the other snails so his movements are impeded.  

Henry has to come to terms with the fact that he is different.  Does he give up trying to have a happy life and retreat into the shadows or does he creatively try other ways to live and gain mobility and happiness?  

Determined Henry finally figures out a way to overcome his lack of slime and he turns out to be an inspiration to his other fellow snails.  

"Henry the Snail" helps kids learn social-emotional skills.  The story is about handicaps, coping with them, yearning, empowerment, and solidarity.  I highly recommend this book.
