This is a very good book, easy to understand,and has some pictures. My daughter and I set up our worm composting bin in less than 1 hour. She had a great time. Would be a good homeschooling activity. We are now learning the in's and out of having worms:). It's a blast! Also the children that I care for during the day are now always telling me, "Our worms will eat that" . Enjoy the book.
