Yucky Worms

Publisher: Walker Books

Review

It's fun helping Gran in the garden, but her grandson is horrified by a worm: 'Yuck!... Throw it away.'

But Gran explains that the worm is a friend and introduces her grandson to the beautiful, delicate and complex subterranean world of these 'underground farmers'.

What worms eat, how they aerate and improve the soil, how they move around – are all revealed in this fascinating insight into worm-world: did you know that worms have five pairs of hearts?

The book ends with extra information and experiments for budding wormologists.

This informative text, perfectly pitched to an inquisitive child's perspective, is accompanied by delicate, beautifully detailed illustrations of the garden, above and below ground, thus emphasising the worm's positive influence on the world around us.
