Nonfiction Monday: Yucky Worms

Yucky Worms
by Vivian French
Illustrated by Jessica Ahlberg
Candlewick Press

This would make a great addition to a storytime or program about: worms, dirt, or gardening.  The end papers show worm paths and worms.  The story is about a young boy gardening with his grandmother who is teaching him about worms.  Also included on the pages are facts about worms, and labeled diagrams.  We learn about worm body parts, what worms like to eat, why worm poop is important, and how worms help our gardens grow better.  We also learn what animals like to eat worms and how we can find worms in the dirt.  The back of the book includes a short index and information on how to be a wormologist.
