Book Review


Slugs eat lettuce. Slugs do not have arms and legs, only a body that helps them to move which is called a “foot." Slugs will dry out so they need to live under rocks and in moist places. These are just some of the facts that students will read about in The Slug. In this short book, students learn a variety of facts with cartoon illustrations to aid comprehension. It explains how even though slugs seem disgusting, their features are crucial to their survival. Additionally, slugs are important to our environment, helping plants grow.
