Slug and Snail Search for Love (Manfredini & Gould)
The perfect book for teaching children about love.
It's time to explore!
Animal besties Slug and Snail return for a new adventure: the search for love's meaning and expression.
"What is love?"
wonders wise Slug.
"Is it always the same
for each creature or bug?"
And so Slug and Snail set out into the world, visiting otters and lions, koalas and bats, geese and dolphins. Slug and Snail Search for Love is a read-along delight for children and adults alike to explore the diversity of love's expression in the animal kingdom.
"Enjoyable and cute," says real-life scholar of mollusks, Jann Vendetti, Ph.D.
Have you read Slug and Snail Search for Home?
The first journey of Slug and Snail was a discovery of belonging, as the friends toured nests and dams, mountains and mounds.
“With beautiful illustrations and lovely text, Meredith Gould and Rebecca Manfredini invite us to journey with new friends [as] they soon discover already exists—home is not a building or structure we find to place over ourselves but an awareness that we are an integral part of all creation."
— Gary Alan Shockley, Sammie's Flat Dog
