The Happy Day

By Ruth Krauss
Illustrated by Marc Simont
Published by Harper Collins, 1949

All the animals are snug in their dens, and cozy for the winter, when they all wake up and smell…something. Soon, all the animals, from the big bears to the tiny snails are racing and sniffing to see what it is: the first spring flower.
This book is a great book to celebrate the end of winter and the beginning of spring for all ages.

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 snailРwho moves at just his speed!Рand a friendship is born.

This book would be a great way to discuss the different ways that animals move.
