From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 2—With a zest for worm farming, young Winnie cares for her red wiggler companions. Hoping to submit them as an entry in the county fair competition, she asks her neighbors for advice, but they are all preoccupied with their own ambitious offerings. In a quiet twist, Winnie's worms serve a greater purpose by helping the other competitors. Instructions for creating a worm farm conclude the lighthearted narrative. Nimble lines and cool colors depict the energy of the active outdoor scenes. Humorous details abound through animated expressions: Winnie's a hoot as she cuddles her favored worm close to her face while the disgusted cat yowls. She maintains her endearing qualities throughout with her smile, freckled cheeks, and no-nonsense visor pulled low over her hair. Winnie's spunky, good-natured heart anchors a gentle and entertaining read.—Meg Smith, Cumberland County Public Library, Fayetteville, NC END
