Sortof the Snail


Pamela Woodford


“This is the tale of Sortof the snail. He was called Sortof because he was sort of this and sort of that. Mostly he was a really happy sort of snail, and then, at other times, he had a sort of worrying feeling. He was sometimes sort of scared. This was usually at night when the lights began to go out …”

But when Sortof begins to understand that the night-time is a very important time, especially for snails, he learns to forget about the dark being scary.

Sortof the Snail addresses such issues as fear of the dark, sleep problems, feeling safe, depression, worrying, relaxation, encouraging peaceful dreams and much more.

All the stories in the Brighter Little Minds series encourage the reader/listener to use their imagination in a positive way. There are also suggestions for activities that aim to further embed the learning and therapeutic metaphor.

Sortof the Snail addresses such issues as fear of the dark, sleep problems, feeling safe, depression, worrying, relaxation, encouraging peaceful dreams and much more.

“No child can flourish unless the patterns of greater possibilities are first grasped in imagination. By imaginatively engaging young minds in her tales, Pamela does a great service, not only to the children themselves but to their families and the wider community.” Ivan Tyrrell, psychotherapist, tutor and author
