Very Educational, Humorous Read!

Narrated by a worm, this animated diary will set the readers rolling. Our main character, our worm, goes through life telling stories of the humorous, high and low points of being a worm. This story gives children a new respect for worms as they imaginatively put themselves in a worm's life. Written by the same wacky author of Click-clack-moo, Cows That Type.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3):
Kids say (4):

Wonderfully illustrated in full-color, cartoon style, this droll story is both smart and funny, and will amuse young children as well as help them see the world from a new perspective. The main character is endearing in his earnest attempt to record his life both above and below ground.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
