About the Book

"Young children (and a hungry bluebird) follow a talkative earthworm around. They learn fun facts about worms and their important role in our environment."--

Book Synopsis

What do worms do all day? How do they see? And why are they so cold and squishy? Find out by going on an underground tour through the hidden world of earthworms. Kevin McCloskey's book even shows readers what's happening inside a worm's body-- brain, crop, gizzard, and more. The book takes young readers from "ew!" to "wow!" as they learn about the different ways worms work hard to help the earth. Kids may pick up many of the life science lessons contained here on their first read, but they'll return to We Dig Worms! again and again to rediscover its story. Deceptively simple, humble yet charming, this little book reaches surprising depths...just like, well, a worm!

"This paean to the worm is a winning combination of facts and gross-out fun." - New York Times

"By focusing on the questions kids ask and the way they ask them, the book moves along quickly and provides accurate, intriguing information without getting bogged down in too much detail...An excellent primer for worm enthusiasts and an excellent easy reader for graphic-novel fans." - Booklist

"Beginning readers who tunnel through this upbeat first introduction will "dig" them too." - Kirkus Reviews
