Go Slow

'Go slow,' said Mother Snail.
     'Snails weren't made to run.'
'Yes, go slow,' said Father Snail,
     'Then life will be more fun.'

'Take time to hear the birds sing
    And see the flowers grow.
Life will be a lot more fun
     If only you 

                                   G O   S L O W!'

This lovely little poem was chosen by teachers and children in many schools and published by AMS Education, Leeds.  Sorry but it is out of publication now, but you have it here.  I hope your children enjoy it and sometimes take Mr and Mrs Snail's advice.
