My sister in law is a special needs teacher and she read this book to her class and they absolutely loved it. She loved it so much she brought a copy of it to my house for a holiday and read it to us (and held it up so we could see the pictures... hee hee)... and OMG!! We screamed and laughed at not only the story but the photos too! Such wit and forethought went into this book! I highly recommend it not only for kids but adults too. If you need a good laugh, you have got to read this book!

I thought this book was great, but it didn't appeal to my daughter. My friend's son loved it. To each his own!
VERY funny.

A worm's wriggly life is never dull, and in this refreshingly original picture book from Doreen Cronin -- author of the Caldecott Honorâwinning Click, Clack, Moo -- and illustrator Harry Bliss, one little critter talks about its highs and lows in a series of totally hilarious diary entries.
From March to August, the baseball capâwearing worm records his thoughts and feelings about friends, family, digging, and eating. Armed with his mom's sage advice ("Never bother Daddy when he's eating the newspaper" is one of the most important) and a fairly positive attitude about life, the "underground dweller" gets a kick out of scaring girls on the playground, hanging out with friends (literally, hanging out with Spider), cutting the rug at school dances (getting farther than "put your head in" during the hokey-pokey is impossible), and other school-worm activities. Of course, a worm's life isn't all fun and games, especially since worms can't chew gum or have a dog, but they never have to go to the dentist or take baths! And while the little worm says life is tough because sometimes people forget worms exist, dear old Mom reminds him that "the earth never forgets we're here."

Really cute story with conservation points, comedy, and touching details. The drawings are precious and the comments are sometimes simple and other times can be recognized as more advanced.

This is a silly little book about what a worm does during the day. It is very funny. I think it is perfect for beginning readers.
