A comical picture book about the unique qualities of various creatures and how they were planned to be just that way by a loving, wise Creator.
The name of this book gives readers a clue that the contents are fun and colorful, and once you open the cover, you’ll know you are right! This fun and colorful book helps children ages 3 to 8 learn about different animals and what they can and cannot do with whimsical rhymes.
I knew my grandson, Dylan would LOVE this book, and I wasn’t wrong! Would a Worm Go on a Walk? was a big hit and right on time for the Easter basket too!
The author asks readers cute questions using “sing-song” rhymes about eight different animals such as “Would a worm go on a walk / if you could lead him down the street? / Would he wear his tiny tennies / if he had four worm-sized feet?” These questions remind kids in a fun way that no, worms don’t have feet so they wouldn’t be wearing sneakers. Written in bouncing rhymes, Would a Worm Go on a Walk? asks all sorts of silly questions: “Would a rhino wear a raincoat?”…”Would a turtle drive a truck if she had to get to town?”…and more. Each question is answered with an equally cute explanation.
The illustrations inside this book are bright and beautiful and they are paired perfectly with the prose of the book. (Unfortunately, y pictures don’t do them justice.) Children will learn how God created each of the animals in the story with their own unique strengths, differences, likes and dislikes, just how God intended. The last page of the book wraps everything up by providing children with the knowledge that they are all created perfectly as part of God’s creation by saying “God’s masterpiece Is YOU!” (“God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.” –Genesis 1:31a)
Would a Worm Go on a Walk? has a great lay out too. Each question is asked on one page, and then, since the young reader cannot see the answer to the question until the page is turned, they can make up their own answers. By keeping the answer hidden, it gives the parent (or teacher) time to discuss the question with the young reader before the answer is discovered.

Her life mission is to please God, however that may look. And though she fails (often and badly) her life verse reminds her that God is good and He is faithful: “Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has done for her will be accomplished!” Luke 1:45. To God be the glory.
