Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Katie DeWald
Mr. Bunsen has brought two hundred live animals to his class: worms! His class is eager to explore the appearance and behavior of the creepy, crawly creatures. Mr. Bunsen encourages the students to generate questions regarding the red wigglers and challenges them to set up thoughtful experiments to answer their own questions. Though the classroom story line feels artificial at times and the large number of equally under-developed characters make it difficult for the reader to remember the few details about each one, kids will enjoy reading about what Mr. Bunsen's class actually does with the worms. The questions raised in Mr. Bunsen's class are not ultimately answered in the book, leaving readers with the opportunity to answer the questions through their own research. Gott's bright, engaging illustrations will keep readers turning the pages. This level 4 book of the "I'm Going to READ" series would be an excellent introduction to a unit about worms, soil, or the scientific method. Reviewer: Katie DeWald
