Helps inform children as to what is underground, what it is that worms do, and how they are useful.

Worms are more useful than I imagined! When I think of icky crawly things, I always think they have no purpose- but really every living thing on earth has a purpose and is useful for something. Worms are incredible little creatures that can't see, hear, chew, or barely even think, but yet they can feel predators and hide very quickly into the soil. The worms burrow in the soil making tunnels for air and water to get to plants' roots. I would use this book not only for teaching about worms, but I'd use it when talking about plants, soil, and gardening. I would definitely do the little experiment that is recommenced at the back of the book too!
