From Story Time: The Letter "X"

Read in Book Babies

By Deborah Freedman
Viking, 2013.  Picture Book.

Every day, Snail waits for Fish to come home with a new story.  Today, Fish's story is too grand simply to be told:  Fish wants to show Snail.  But that would mean leaving the familiar world of their book--a scary prospect for Snail, who would rather stay safely at home and pretend to be kittens.  Fish scoffs; Snail snaps back.  Is this book too small for the two feuding friends?  Freedman has created a sweet and playful story about friendship that truly jumps off the page.  --Publisher

Amazing things are happening all around you. You just need to know where to look—and this whimsical picture book is the perfect place to start. Have you ever wished for something extraordinary?

But take a look around, and you just might find that the most “ordinary” things…can be extraordinary.  --Publisher
