Description

Life moves oh-so-slow when your little brother is a snail. It takes forever to do anything! Really, it’s enough to test the patience of even the most understanding big sister. But is Moe just slow or is there something else going on? With charming illustrations by Marianne Ferrer, award-winning author Deborah Kerbel has written a delightful story about love, support and the struggle for tolerance within the often tumultuous sibling relationship.

This accessible audiobook features alternate text descriptions of images, including the cover.

Editorial Reviews

“A sweet harangue...filled with wonderful details…Reminds readers that we are different people depending upon whom we are with and that familial relationships are complex and simple at the same time.”

— Kirkus Reviews

“Both validates the individuality of difference and the role of others in appreciating this difference and in practicing empathy. Highly Recommended.”

— CM: Canadian Review of Materials

“This book is a great book for anyone who has a sibling or has to deal with a different personality. It would be a fun tale to have in an elementary school or home library.”
