Snail Started It!

Paperback (North-South Aug. 1, 1999)
Sticks and stones will break your bones, and names will sometimes hurt you! This charming circular story demonstrated how unkind words can damage self-esteem and kind ones restore it. It all starts when Snail calls Pig fat. "I like being big and round," Pig replies. "I'm happy just the way I am." But Snail's remarks do upset Pig, so much that when she meets Rabbit she insults him. He is turn insults Dog; Dog insults spider; Spider insults Goose; and, coming full circle, Goose insults Snail. Since Snail started it all, it's up to him to set things right, initiating a similar cycle of apologies.
