This charming story explores the relationship between Felicity and Jane, two African Snails. As their love grows, they start a family together and bring two delightful baby snails into the world.

Ideas for School & Activities linked with the story

The story can be used with younger children to begin to introduce and normalise the notion of same-sex parents bringing up children or can be used as an introduction to discussing equality and tolerance with older children. This is the first in a series of picture books intended to be shared with young children to explore equality and diversity issues.

Please feel free to download the PDF with a range of ideas for assemblies and classroom activities that can be used alongside the story. Alternatively, check out this video to see how you can be creative with some play dough and conkers…
