Harry is a tortoise who wants a friend. Unfortunately, everyone he tries to befriend is too fast and busy to slow down for Harry. Finally, Harry encounters a snail– who moves at just his speed!– and a friendship is born.
This book would be a great way to discuss the different ways that animals move.
