Review: Would a Worm...
The name of this book gives readers a clue that the contents are fun and colorful, and once you open the cover, you'll know you are right! This fun and colorful book helps children ages 3 to 8 learn about different animals and what they can and cannot do with whimsical rhymes.
My child is 12 so she wasn't really interested but I knew my nieces would be.
The author asks readers cute questions using "sing-song" rhymes about eight different animals such as "Would a worm go on a walk / if you could lead him down the street? / Would he wear his tiny tennies / if he had four worm-sized feet?" These questions remind kids in a fun way that no, worms don't have feet so they wouldn't be wearing sneakers. Written in bouncing rhymes, Would a Worm Go on a Walk? asks all sorts of silly questions: "Would a rhino wear a raincoat?"..."Would a turtle drive a truck if she had to get to town?"...and more. Each question is answered with an equally cute explanation.
It is a really sweet book that kids will love.
