Each year, I buy worms to put in my worm habitat. My three and four-year old pre-K class loves learning about the worms. This book was perfect for teaching important vocabulary words and characteristics of worms. It covered all the concepts that I've introduced for years; I especially liked that it suggested we save the worms lost on the sidewalk after rain. This is something we always do as we walk back to our classroom from the buses. I chose not to explain the mating process with them, but there were so many interesting pictures and words, they didn't even notice that I skimmed over that page. I was especially excited when they came up to me on the playground and told me they had found castings; all of this from the illustrations in the book. This is a keeper in my reference library.

No surprise here. The little boys loved it. I think the 5-year-old probably liked it the best. Recommend for young kids,

This was a perfect book for teaching kindergarten students about underground workers in the garden. I plan on using it again next year.

I got this to go with a worm farm gift for a birthday gift (6Y old). It is well written and informative as well as scientifically acurate.
