The End of the Beginning: Being the Adventures of a Small Snail (and an Even Smaller Ant)
This book is so wonderful; full of adventure, compassion, inquiry, questioning skills, philosophy, humor, paradoxes, etc. etc. If you have a group of children in front of you, I heartily recommend reading them this book. I have used in grades 1, 3, 5, and 6. I have also read it to my 14 year old cousin, and everybody loves it! I won't say anything more, enjoy it for yourself on your own level, and make it apply to your life. Enjoy!
