Through cute and funny pictures kids will learn about the common land slug. Great vocabulary words are used such as mollusk, tentacles and predator in a way that kids can figure out what they mean. The group of 5-8 year olds that I read this to loved the silly things that the slug said as well as learning about how slugs move around, find a mate and the fact that they are both boys and girls at the same time.
I enjoyed all of the great curriculum tie-ins for learning about the natural world and biology. I also liked that the slugs importance to humans and the environment was included.
