Worms

A simple book about the life cycle of the earthworm.

You learn a bit about worms and keeping a diary–and you get plenty of laughs. (For instance, one page reads “June 15 – My older sister thinks she’s so pretty. I told her that no matter how much time she spends looking in the mirror, her face will always look just like her rear end.” See?)

Friends come in all shapes and sizes. While one friend finds himself completely transformed after a long snooze, the other sticks to his routine and feels that he has missed out on something special. In the end, however, they discover that one could not have survived without the other.

Each page delves into a different aspect of composting, from the needs of the heap to the decomposers that dwell in compost. Don’t forget to look for fun facts scattered throughout this book and step by step instructions for creating compost in a bag!
