Would a worm go on a walk, if you could lead him down the street? / Would he wear his tiny tennies, if he had two worm-sized feet?
So begins this humorous and imaginative picture book that introduces children to the idea that animals are uniquely created by a loving and wise God. Would a Worm Go on a Walk?, with its colorful, comical illustrations, is a fresh, fun way to teach young children that God created all things very good. He gave all the animals, and children, too, wonderful qualities and unique strengths. Children will giggle over the ridiculous scenarios presented, and they will come away with the knowledge that we all are loved and special. Ages 4-7.
My take on this book:
If you think the cover of this book is vibrant then you really need to see the illustrations inside. They are wonderfully done with bright,beautiful colors and they are paired perfectly with the rhyming prose that Hannah C. Hall shares. The pictures will certainly capture the imagination, and probably put a smile on the face as your child learns the valuable lesson that God created each of the animals in the story differently, with their own unique strengths, likes, and dislikes, just how he planned them to be. The final page though really wraps the story up perfectly, and children will know that they are a part of God's creation and created perfectly as well.
What a wonderful story to share with youngsters, positive messages and self esteem building can never start to early in a youngsters life and this book really provides the message that they are special, one of God's true masterpieces in spades. I can see this book becoming a favorite. Truly a delightful read.
