"Becky Benishek's astonishing tale of a bored snail, who fails to see the beauty and excitement in the world around him until he truly opens his eyes, is one filled with smiles and excitement from beginning to end. The story encourages readers to go out and explore up close what is right there, at the ends of their noses, instead of complaining and becoming so easily bored. Doing so not only shines a spotlight on the beauty of your natural surroundings, once you open your eyes and truly see it, but also enables you to make new friends without trying too hard. I recommend What's at the End of Your Nose?
not only to children, but to people of all ages." -Rosie Malezer for Readers' Favorite (starred)
"Readers will be delighted by Sidney's appreciation of the small things that he finds. What's at the End of Your Nose?
is a perfect story to read aloud to even the youngest readers. It is a great starting point to spark discussion about one's environment and finding magic in the ordinary." -Luisa LeFleur, The Children's Book Review
From the Author
Sidney Snail happened because I saw a series of photographs: Snails were exploring, contemplating, gazing. It was captivating.
But then I thought: What if this were just one snail? What if this were a tale of that one snail's day?
And Sidney Snail was born.
