    Enjoy your Saturday morning with a reading of the children’s book Escargot, by Dashka Slater.  After we read together, we'll have a fun and interactive healthy food activity.

    ABOUT THE BOOK:  A charming, funny, interactive picture book that is ideal for picky eaters and animal lovers alike. Escargot is a beautiful French snail who wants only two things: 
    1. To be your favorite animal. 
    2. To get to the delicious salad at the end of the book. 
    But when he gets to the salad, he discovers that there's a carrot in it. And Escargot hates carrots. But when he finally tries one—with a little help from you!—he discovers that it's not so bad after all.
