Yucky Worms by Vivian French

French, Vivian Yucky Worms illustrated by Jessica Ahlberg 32 pgs. Candlewick Press, 2009. PICTURE BOOK/NON-FICTION. $16.99. In this clever and humorous book, kids will be delighted and perhaps a bit disgusted as they learn all about wiggly worms. This book does a fantastic job of combining a fun story with true information. It spans information from where earthworms live and how they look to how they eat, move, poop, and breathe. I was fascinated by all of the things there are to learn about earthworms....but I still wouldn't want to touch one! The illustrations are bright and colorful and kids will enjoy learning more about these underground farmers! Included at the back is a guide on how to be a "wormologist" as well as an index to find out all about wormy things! EL-ESSENTIAL. Whitney, Library-Teacher.
