Nina the Snail Does Not Like Her Greens

By Nicola Bell
Illustrated by Jimmy Peacock

For ages 4+
A story for anyone who doesn’t like their greens. Come with Nina as she explores the garden to find what she likes.

Learn with Nina that not all vegetables are green, and that eating things that are all the colours of the rainbow can be delicious! Children will enjoy the occasional alliteration, learning different words for eating, and talking about different colours of food. These picture books were designed to accompany the LanguageLift program. However, children will also enjoy the books separately as they learn about the elements of a good story.

You can use this book to discuss:

  • Vegetables and how they grow
  • Snails, where we find them and what they look like
  • How different people have different tastes

Linked activity idea

Plant some vegetable seeds together or make a dish using vegetables from the story to try!

Why picture books?

Picture books cover a diverse range of topics, expose children to words and language they might not hear normally in conversation, and teach children how reading works (left to right, top to bottom). While picture books might be too hard for early readers to read by themselves at first, the books are not too hard to understand. Reading picture books with your child will inspire them to learn to read on their own, and experience the pleasure of reading.

These picture books were designed to accompany the LanguageLift program. However, children will also enjoy the books separately as they learn about the elements of a good story.
