Topic

This week our story is Sharing a Shell by Julia Donaldson. It is an underwater story of friendship and fun. When Crab finds a new shell, he doesn’t want to share it with anyone – especially not a blobby purple anemone and a tickly bristle worm. But life in the rock pool proves tougher than Crab thinks and he soon finds he needs his new housemates.
