Description

Norman lands on a washing line. Why do people hang wet clothes on a washing line? What does evaporation mean?

I really liked this book, as I do like to watch the slugs and snails in real life too and I imagined how it would look like if I see it. Ever since I’ve found out about Book Outlet I have been buying children’s books like crazy. Some for my children, some to give as gifts to my relatives who have young childrend. urn:lcp:normanslucwithsi0000unse:lcpdf:50be6751-2e97-47c7-a58e-a409be557fb6 Foldoutcount 0 Identifier normanslucwithsi0000unse Identifier-ark ark:/13960/t4dp2zx8t Invoice 1652 Isbn 9781847389763The fabulous Norman the Slug with the Silly Shell makes his way into a gorgeous glittery board book edition.

A fantastically bold and fun picture book that will teach children the importance of accepting who you are. Norman the Slug is looking for a perfect shell—but can he find his match? Find out in the super sparkly anniversary edition of this much-loved Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet classic! The text is rather simplistic and straightforward. It is a humorous story about a slug trying to fit in with a group of snails with equally humorous results. The illustrations are rather colorful with bright and vivid colors for the myriad of shells depicted. The snails are forming a triangular pattern in one of the illustrations. Can you investigate triangular numbers? Premise/plot: Norman, the "hero" of the book, doesn't have a shell. At least not yet. This picture book shows him "finding" a very silly shell to wear when playing with the other slugs. But. There are consequences as well...when your shell is so tasty.My thoughts: I don't think I've reminded anyone--this week at least--that reading picture books is super subjective. You may love Norman. You may find him super-silly. You may laugh and giggle. I did not. I found it strange, but not ha ha strange. Norman frees himself with a ‘slither and a slother, a slip and a slide’. Can you make up your own sentences that use alliteration? Norman is a slug, but he wishes he was a snail. The search for a perfect shell brings him across the most interesting possibilities, and the results. . .well, things don't quite turn out the way anyone thought they would. First sentence: Norman the slug thought snails were great. "Wow!" said Norman. "Look at them! They're amazing! But unfortunately, the snails didn't think Norman was great. "Norman, you silly slug!" they cried. "You've spoiled our fun. This only works if you've got a shell." Norman felt left out. Sadly, he skulked off into the moonlight.

Norman ‘skulked’ off when the snails shouted at him. Can you find other words that can be used to describe how a slug moves?

Find out in this “fantastically bold and fun picture book that will teach children the importance of accepting who you are” ( Junior News and Mail ).

Look at the illustration of Norman looking at his reflection. Can you draw your own symmetrical picture like this? The children love books by Sue Hendra and were interested in Norman The Slug With The Silly Shell as soon as they saw it. The story is about a slug called Norman who wants to be a snail but he hasn't got a shell so he heads off to try and find one. Look at the different shades of each colour in the illustrations. Can you mix different Art materials to make new shades of the same colour? With similarly bold illustration, eye-catching cover and simple text [as Barry the Fish with Fingers] this has the potential to be another hit.
