Nina the Snail Does Not Like Her Greens


Written by Nicola Bell, illustrated by Jimmy Peacock

A story for anyone who doesn’t like their greens. Come with Nina as she explores the garden to find what she likes.

Ideal for use with children in the first two years of school (age 4-7). This book has been written to accompany the LanguageLift program, but can also be used independently. The explicit story elements will make it particularly helpful for those struggling with oral language.

Nina the Snail Does Not Like Her Greens provides an excellent introduction to narrative story structure, with all key story elements made explicit. With a garden animal and vegetable theme, the book provides an opportunity to explore verbs for eating (e.g., gobbled, munched), an interesting 'feeling' adverb (furiously), and a fun series of double adjective-noun pairs (e.g., big red tomato, little pink radish, long orange carrot). Learn with Nina that not all vegetables are green, and that eating things that are all the colours of the rainbow can be delicious! Children will enjoy the occasional alliteration, learning different words for eating, and talking about different colours of food. You can use this book to discuss:
  • Vegetables and how they grow
  • Snails, where we find them and what they look like
  • How different people have different tastes
