The Snail and the Butterfly by Dougie Coop

Along with The Children's Book Review and the author, Dougie Coop, I'm on tour with The Snail and the Butterfly. All opinions are my own.

About the Book:

Have you ever wanted to do something great? Something no one else believed you could do? Well, here is your chance to learn how. Meet a little snail who wanted to fly and an old butterfly who questioned why. Travel with the little snail as he crawls up a mushroom determined to soar from the top. But every time, the same thing makes him stop: fear. Sound familiar?

Filled with inspiration and motivation, this magical conversation between an ambitious snail and a seasoned butterfly encourages us to pursue our dreams regardless of who we are or where we come from.

With words by award-winning author Doug Cooper aka Dougie Coop, and illustrations by acclaimed Australian artist CJ the Kid, the rhythmic verse and playful style remind us all we can achieve the impossible as long as we believe, trust, and persevere.


You can see the type of illustrations in this book from the cover. I love the cute lines and especially the font of the words. It is as if a child wrote the story and it is magical. New friends, Butterfly and Snail, watch each other every day and wish they could do what the other does. This book is ideal for ages 4 and up and it is a great lower elementary book for early readers. There are not a lot of words so early readers would have fun with the story. It also teaches a wonderful lesson to not give up. Everyone could use a reminder of this at times and in this cute book you find it with Butterfly and Snail.
