A Snail's Pace Race (Grades 4-8)
Written by: Patricia Fine
Illustrated by: Jimmy Chau and Quinn Benedict
It is the day of the great race, and all the snails are excited. Many of the runners have trained hard, followed special diets, and bought new equipment. They all want to win. But some snails think they can depend on their reputations and fancy equipment and clothes without bothering to train, and rely on their popularity with the crowd to achieve first place. But will popularity win this race? A dynamic read aloud, complete with a screaming fan, roaring crowd, and interesting commentary-like dialogue from reporters Robin Bailey and Chris Cole. All the readers together form the "Crowd" and participate by cheering, booing, and expressing excitement throughout the race. If the costume kit is purchased, each member of the "Crowd" is given a pom pom to shake.
