Review: What's At the End of Your Nose?: A Slipperyville Tale by:Becky Benishek

 What's at the End of Your Nose?: A Slipperyville Tale
About the Book:
Bonus: The paperback doubles as a coloring book! Grab your favorite colored pencils and settle in to enjoy Sidney's magical world from cover to cover.

Sidney Snail is so sick of Slipperyville that he wants to go on an adventure-any adventure-anywhere but here! A timely word from mysterious Old Samuel Snail convinces Sidney to give Slipperyville one last chance before he snails out of town. Experience a snail's-eye view as Sidney awakens the world around him.

Sidney will help show children (and adults!) that they can find magic, mindfulness, and meaningfulness in even the simplest things. All you need is a change of perspective.


My Review:
 As all people do from time to time, especially as you are young and getting older and more grown up you tend to want to spread your wings and fly. And in a sense this is exactly what Sidney Snail wants to do. But before he does, he is instructed by someone older and more mature to experience the life around you before you decide there isn't one there yet. So that is exactly what Sidney does and the more he surveys the world around him the more he becomes fascinated with his world.

 Sidney learned a valuable lesson that day and we can too, if we only time the time to see what's at the end of our noses. I would say this book is better for a more experienced reader but could be a great read aloud to a group or single child. This book doubles as a coloring book, so thats a plus.
