The tale of Joshy the snail is about a snail who accepts diversity and realizes that it is most important to focus on the you that is within. Joshy the snail is a thinker who one stormy night wanders far from home. During the storm, Joshy falls and breaks his shell. Instead of focusing on the broken shell he travels home as the snail with no shell, Joshy the Thinker. Along the way he sees his friends, but they do not recognize him. It is Joshy’s parents who instantly know it is him, even without his shell. They always saw the real Joshy and not the shell of what he wanted everyone to see.
