The one thing I always enjoy about books written for young children is the amount of imagination and sometimes silliness you can enjoy through the story. Such is that with Would a Worm Go on a Walk? . The title itself is something, as an adult, you would probably never consider. For a child, the question is a logical one and worth flipping through the pages to find the answer.
Author Hannah C. Hall has written a story that is colorfully illustrated by Bill Bolton. It starts with the original question about worms. The question is answered and readers move to the next question of whether or not “Would a Piglet play piano?” that is followed by a number of other silly, but fun questions your child will enjoy. I always wondered if a “possum would like to polka”, haven’t you? Hall brings her story to an end reminding readers that God has a purpose for everything He created, which includes worms, lions, penguins and more. We are all unique in our own way.
“He planned their every detail, both the normal to the odd…………The animals were just a start. God’s masterpiece is you!”
Would a Worm Go on a Walk? is a great story to enjoy with your toddler to early elementary age child (four to seven years old) as a read-aloud or as an independent one by your reader. There is a lot of opportunity for call and response (“Would a…?) as well as for children to learn the characteristics of the many animals included in the story. Would a Worm Go on a Walk? is a fun one and you may even find your older children sitting around just to share the read.
Hannah C. Hall is the wife of a worship pastor and the mother of four children. Hall is a best-selling author of other children’s books that include God Bless You and Good Night and God Bless Our Christmas. You may read more about Hannah C. Hall.
