Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Squiggling, wiggling bugs hold special interest for youngsters. Many of them will enjoy this title in the "Backyard Bug" series which informs them about what they could find in their own backyard. The eating and moving habits of worms are discussed as well as the ability of worms to benefit nature. A mid-book illustration stretches for two pages and shows how worms eat and why they poop. Bug jar-shaped sidebars appear on every spread and the organized information they contain enhances the regular text. Identifying earthworm parts and functions are presented in a page following the regular text. Simple, colorful illustrations show a couple of kids who are experiencing the narrative as it progresses. Fun facts, an activity—making a worm farm, words to know, and other places to find information are included in the book's back matter. Use this as an instructional supplement to science units or just as a fun read for kids who want to go "buggy." 2006, Picture Window Books, Ages 4 to 9.
