Alex Schefflers artwork is beautiful complements the stories perfectly. The same characters often pop up in different books, whether it be the Gruffalo Child’s stick man in his own story or simply a squirrel and a frog. This helps my son who is fifteen months old develop his own narrative. He does not understand the words I am reading but gets plenty from the rhythm and my intonation whilst building his own story and understanding from the pictures, he is always pointing different characters out to me or finding them when I ask where they are. He loves books and I think that these books enhance a joy of reading and learning. He brings the books to me time and time again.
The verses in Supeworm are simple and short, making it great for younger toddlers and moments when attention spans are low. The images of everyday garden insects are great allowing children to recognise them if they have seen them outdoors before. My little boy loves pointing out the spiders in their webs and has even noticed some that I didn't see.
As far as the book is concerned, it’s great quality for young children and the pictures and writing are both bright and easy and accessible to read.
Superworm is an odd little hero but hero he is, he saves lots of his friends by contorting himself into various positions, before he finds himself in peril at the hands of Wizard Lizard, will he become lunch for a crow?
As always Julia Donaldson's rhyming story is a pleasure to read and one that lends itself to reading aloud and being learned by heart. My children very quickly started to join in with the chants of Superworm and my five year old soon started to recite the words along with my reading.
Scheffler's illustrations are of their usual high standard, we love that you can spot other characters from the Donaldson/Scheffler canon amidst the pages. Can you find the Gruffalo? Superworm is a must for all Julia Donaldson fans, it really is a lovely story about the power of friendship.
