If digging for worms is an everyday occurrence at your house too then you have to find this book. An Earthworm's Life by John Himmelman.
The girls and I have been doing a lot of yard work gardening which almost always leads to finding worms, creating worm homes in our buckets and watching lots of worms wiggle in our hands. My girls LOVE worms. So when I was looking through the nonfiction section at the library and found this book I was pretty excited. I didn't know that much about worms so it was a good book for me too!
We like the book because the text is simple and can hold the girl's attention much like a fiction book but has a ton of great information about worms. We learned all about what they do during the winter, what they eat, who they are scared of and how they have babies. Now the girls have a lot more knowledge about these great little treasures that are all over our backyard!
