Yucky Worms

Author: Vivian French
Illustrator: Jessica Ahlberg
Publisher: Walker

A boy learns from observing worms in the garden alongside his grandmother that they are not so yucky after all. He finds out that their eating and excretion habits are helpful in recycling material which is good for the soil and helps plants grow. Gran dispels the myth that cutting worms in half doesn’t hurt them. The informative ongoing intergenerational conversation is supplemented by facts integrated with illustrations which are more diagrammatic than the central pictures.
