The students in my class absolutely love these Worm, Spider, and Fly books--I hope more will come! I have read each of them at least twice last year. The funny thing is that there are a few jokes the kids might not get but the adults definitely will. Once I explain them to my students they all burst into laughter once they finally get it. Every elementary classroom or home should have these fabulous books!

This book is really humorous, even if you read it for the hundredth time!!! It is very good for the class room and teachers would find the book to be a good read. Be sure to read Diary of a Spider and Diary of a Fly!

My 3 year old has read this book every night for the past several months. It is creative and thought-provoking, encouraging young kids to see the world through the eyes of another. Highly recommend.

'May 28th: 'You put your head in, you put your head out, you do the hokey pokey and you turn yourself about...thats all we could do!' In this funny story, 'Diary of a Worm', by Doreen Cronin, the worm writes everything in his diary. One day, the worm was in art class and he makes macaroni necklaces. They ate it for dinner! That night the worm wrote about his necklace in his diary. I would recommend this book because it's a funny story that makes me laugh. It is a great book for second grade!

I love this book. It's the best of the series. It's one of my son's favorite books. He liked it so much, he has since bought Diary of a Spider and Diary of a Fly which are also good, but Diary of a Worm is the funniest.

I loved this book after the first reading. I laughed out loud several times during the story. This cute book is well written, and the author does a great job weaving in facts/information about worms. I think both lower and upper elementary grade students would enjoy this book. Also, I think it could be used when introducing journaling or keeping a diary to children. I highly recommend Diary of a Worm!

Dairy of a Worm is a delightfully humorous account of the everyday life of a common earthworm. Through interesting text and charming illustrations, this book is sure to be a favorite of the young and old alike. Within this book Doreen Cronin provides her readers with concise, yet informative, text that allows the audience to view the world through the eyes of a worm. The personification of the characters is simply hilarious! Through the interaction of the main character and the supporting characters, the author depicts the mischievous personality of a young boy who is discovering the world all around him. The illustrations are charmingly done by Harry Bliss. From the cover of the book until the last page, the colorfully painted drawings captivate the reader. The story is definitely enhanced by the whimsical way that Mr. Bliss depicts the situations throughout the story. In my opinion, the illustrator most effectively develops the story through his drawings which include both worms and humans. These illustrations allow us to consider the way worms must view us from their perspective. Overall, this is a great book that I and my students loved reading.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Doreen Conin's Diary of a Worm and think that it would be appropriate for children of different ages. The main 'worm' discusses, in first person, the pros and cons of being a worm. Children of all ages may view the slimy little creatures differently after reading this book. Teachers could use this book to model journal writing and introduce science lessons and units. The author's words and illustrator's pictures work cooperatively in a way that would make readers want more.

The Diary of a Worm is my all time favorite book. It is amazing! The creativity is absolutely beyond any other story, and the pictures are phenomenal. I'd reccommend it to anyone with an incredible imagination, and anyone who loves animals and would like to have a good laugh. The worst part is that it is so short. There should be a sequel! Beyond 5-Star!

The Diary of a Worm is wonderfully written and beautifully illustrated! It is a hilarious story about life--- through a worm's perspective! My 6 year old daughter truly enjoyed this book and her mother was amused as well!

This book is adorable, and appeals tremendously not only to my four-year-old son (who LOVES it) but also to every adult who has read it to him. It's packed full of humor and heart plus family, friends, and fears. The illustrations are absolutely perfect.

At first glance, I didn't think this was going to be a good book. It's about a worm for crying out loud. Buuut, when she saw it in the library, my 4 year old daughter wanted to read it, so I reluctantly checked it out for her. She loved it so much that we have checked it out numerous times thereafter and I have grown to love it also. When I characterize the words and point to the pictures as we read, she wants to re-read it again. We are especially tickled when worm says to his sister 'no matter how much you look in the mirror, your face will always look like your behind. Spider thought it was funny, Mom did not.' That is such a hoot! Anyway, we loved it immensly so I decided to purchase it for her and introduce ourselves to the Diary of a Spider also.

As a mom, I really want my kids to develop a love of reading. I decided to get this book for my kids because they love to read about worms, bugs, and other 'gross' things...ha ha. I also loved this little story. It was great to share with them, and they loved reading it on their own as well. As you can see below, I also got them a book about Nose Pickin' and a book about a gassy dog! HA!

Diary of a Worm by Doreen Cronin is a hilarious book written for all ages from a worm¿s point of view. Harry Bliss did a great job illustrating it, making the illustration got right along with the wording of the story. In this book, Worm learns many useful things such as worms can not walk upside down, Hopscotch is a very dangerous game, and worms can not chew gum or have pet dogs. This book is about the daily events of a young worm; it tells about his school, homework, dreams, home, family, friends, and even thoughts. In the front and back of the book here are pictures with captions that Worm took. These pictures include a twenty dollar bill that Worm thinks is a leaf, a baseball he thinks is a rock, the time Bee stung him, his family vacation, him and his friend, his own comic, and his report card. I think this is a first-class book that everyone will enjoy. Both children and adults will find this book amusing because of its word choice and illustrations.
