Friendship is an important value for children. It helps them grow as people and learn to trust others. The Snoring Unicorn by Cynthia Rand is a great story that illustrates this concept. The story takes place in the Enchanted Forest. Everyone lives in peace and harmony there. However, at the edge of the forest is the realm of the demon Gornoc, who lives banished with his trolls. One day, Gornoc finds a way to contaminate the water of the Enchanted Forest with a virus, which weakens the inhabitants and makes them sick in different ways. No one knows exactly what is happening. So Yazmin, a unicorn, embarks on an adventure with her friends to find Aiyana, Wizard of the North Mountain Lake, the forest's protector.
I loved how each character learns something valuable during their adventure. Yazmin travels with diverse animals, each with a distinct personality. And being different, each one has an aspect to control. For this reason, they demonstrate various values, such as humility and teamwork. They discover how they all have quirks to deal with and seek to do what is best for each other. I liked how Cynthia Rand developed the idea in a fun way. Children will learn about life lessons and value interactions with their peers. This will allow them to empathize and make them more collaborative. In addition, the images are charming. The characters have realistic textures, making them eye-catching. For all these reasons, The Snoring Unicorn is ideal for teaching young readers about loyalty and support entertainingly.
