What a priceless children's book! I'm so in love with the absolutely adorable animals, the rhymes, and the affirmation of God's purposeful and perfect creation. With no holds barred, I recommend that you find a copy at the library or from your favorite book vendor and enjoy this colorful, creative, Christian story with your favorite little one (or a brood of them). This would make a wonderful addition to your churches toddler's ministry. I received a review copy from the blogger review group First Look (Worthy Publishing) in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

Would a Worm Go on a Walk? is a cute story that walks children through the idea that each animal is created to be unique and has its own special qualities. Reading through the story, children entertain the idea that a worm could go on a walk, or a piglet play the piano, or a lion be a lifeguard. Children meet nine different animals in the book, each suggesting they do something different than they were designed for. The book finishes with the reader learning that just like the animals who cannot do anything other than what they were designed for, children are the same. God created each of us with our own strengths, abilities and gifts and not one of us is imperfect or wrong. Through this story, a child discovers that they are equally as unique and special just the way they are. Based on the Bible verse from Genesis 1:31a "God saw all that he had made, and it was very good", the author spins a tale that leaves children giggling and learning at the same time. The illustrations in this book are bright and engaging, with cartoon depictions of each animal doing the silly things they are proposed to be able to do. Pictures have enough silly in them to keep kids engaged and giggling while still realistic enough to be recognizable and relatable. My children, ages 6, 4, and 2 have loved reading this book over and over, and I have enjoyed reading it to them. This is a book that will stay on my shelf for years to come! * I received this book for free in exchange for my review. All opinions expressed are my own.

What do worms do? Do they go for walks? On a leash with a loving child at the helm? Well, gosh, that sounds pretty silly! And that’s exactly the premise of this delightful new children’s book. Would a Worm Go On a Walk? opens with a worm, of course! And not just any worm but a worm going on a walk, complete with adorable little tennis shoes. Children will break out in giggles seeing the endearing worm wearing both four shoes (I guess worms have four feet?) and bright red glasses. Next the author asks her readers if a piglet would play the piano?: Would a piglet play piano/if her teacher had her try?/Or would she sing falsetto/if her voice could go that high? There are plenty of silly questions to follow, from rhinos wearing raincoats to turtles driving trucks. Each question seems funnier than the previous, and even this adult reviewer was laughing at the ideas of various animals doing things that God never meant them to do. And indeed, that’s how the story concludes – with the explanation that God has a purpose for each animal, and it’s not the silly things in the story. And the greatest message of all - that HIS most important creation is YOU! The message in Would a Worm Go On a Walk? is important and presented in such an amusing way, that kids will want to read the book over and over. I can see youngsters shouting their answers to each question before the page is turned. Add in the charming, bright artwork by Bill Bolton, whose books have sold over 2.5 million copies, and you have a definite winner of a children’s book that will remind children of how special they are to God. Quill says: A perfect bedtime story to entertain and reinforce an important message.

This was fantastic. The illustrations were beautiful. The answers to the questions were a happy surprise for me. Most books would say yes to all the questions and not no. This was well planned out. I received this book from Worthy Publishing for a fair and honest opinion.

My thoughts: It is always a joy and delight to be able to help young children come to a knowledge that all of Creation was made by God and that each creature does what it does simply because it was designed that way by God the Creator. When it can be taught in an entertaining and educational way that is within the levels that will capture the imagination of the young child, it is a true prize indeed. Would A Worm Go On A Walk? is just such a prize. Written by Hannah C. Hall in good rhyme that flows beautifully and illustrated in such a joyful and delightful way by Bill Bolton, the book will entertain with quirky critters and questions about them - kind of nonsense stuff. We all know worms don't have feet to walk, but to ask the question "Would a worm go on a walk?" tickles that nonsensical funny bone we all have. Ending with a strong finish that declares that "God's masterpiece Is YOU!" ("God saw all that he had made, and it was very good." --Genesis 1:31a) They look just as he wanted, and they act just as they should. He made them and he loves them, and he calls them very good. But God's designs weren't finished. His special plans weren't through. The ANIMALS were just a start. God's masterpiece is YOU! I received a complimentary copy from the publisher to facilitate this review with my own, honest opinions.

Would A Worm Go On A Walk? By: Hannah C. Hall Illustrated by Bill Bolton I loved this cover a cute little worm with re glasses with red tennis shoes walking among the flowers that are beautiful. But does a worm have feet and legs? Throughout this cute book there are cute pictures with bright colors to catch a child’s eyes. The bright colors and cute pictures will keep a child interested in the book while you read to them. Cute pictures with all kinds of animals in grass or water, cars the pictures are bright and so very cute I loved to look at them. This cute little book is about how God made humans and animals different but yet they are uniquely made too by God our creator. For example: “IF a worm had legs and feet would it go for a walk if you could lead it down the street? Would he wear his tiny tennies if he had four worm- sized feet? Each story has different things with different animals or a lot of animals. This one of the cutest books for children I have seen. There’s different questions with different answers shows us how God gave the animals with unique qualities and special strengths. God made each animal so very unique and humans as well. Now that shows you how awesome our God is doesn’t it. What a wonderful way for a child to learn that God knows what he is doing even when we don’t understand things at the time. I think a child will giggle as a parent reads each cute little story to them. I’ll also bet that child will point at a picture and look up at you with innocence and ask very important questions that you never even thought of. Children are so inquisitive and get smarter all the time. I recommend this book highly because I really loved this story at my age which is quite old I must say, I have great grand children. I think I’ll give this book to one of my grand children for their child. Although don’t tell anyone I’d love to keep it and read it over and over makes me feel young once again.  I received this book free from Worthy Publishing for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review just an honest one. The opinions I have expressed are entirely my own and no one else’s. 5 Stars ISBN-13:978-0-8249-5677-6

Hannah C. Hall, Bill Bolton, and Worthy Kids have partnered to publish a bright, colorful children's book just right for spring. It begins with a two page spread showing a pair of children's feet wearing purple tennis shoes and a smaller earthworm wearing red sneakers amidst colorful dandelions. The question for those first pages, "Would a worm go on a walk if you could lead him down the street?" After another page of questions about the worm, the answer is "No, no matter how he tries, worms weren't made for walking and they don't like exercise." The question/answer format continues with different animals, silly questions, and delightful illustrations, all building to the main idea that each animal was formed on purpose by God, each with its own uniqueness. The story ends with the little girl with purple shoes holding a dandelion sitting on a rock, learning that God's masterpiece is her (or the child reading the book). This book would be a wonderful addition to a church's nursery, youngest Sunday school class, or children's library. I believe books make wonderful baby shower gifts, and while most people give board books, I think hardcover picture books are the start to creating a life long reader. Spring flowers and green grass dance off the pages of this book, guaranteeing smiles on the listeners' faces. I think this title will find a new home at my granddaughter's Christian daycare where it can be enjoyed for many springs to come. I received a copy of this book form Worthy Publishing and First Look bloggers for review purposes.
