Slugs in Love
I was beyond tickled to discover Slugs in Love by Susan Pearson, and illustrated by Kevin O' Malley, a veritable epistolary masterpiece for the Pre-K crowd! In the story we meet a particularly romantic pair of slugs--Marylou and Herbie. Marylou just loves everything about Herbie. Her heart is simply filled with poetry whenever she thinks of him! So one day she decides to leave him a love note, written in slug trail. Herbie is flattered of course, but doesn't know which slug is leaving him such soulful slime. He keeps trying to arrange a meet-up. "Marylou:" he responds, "You could make my life complete! I'd love to meet someone so sweet." but the rain washes his message away! Will these star-crossed lovers ever be united? Check out Slugs in Love to find out!
