This week we met our new friend Baxter and celebrated his second birthday! We have been spending a lot of time in the garden and over last week we found a snail that the children enjoyed observing. We noticed how it can hide in its shell and that when it comes out it has two antenna! We also saw how the snail leaves a sticky trail as it crawls, and that the snail is so sticky that when you turn it over it can stick to a hand or a leaf. We read the book "The Snail and the Whale" about another adventurous snail.
