That's why I jumped at the chance to get my hands on the new book, Would a Worm go on a Walk? by Hannah C. Hall, illustrated by Bill Bolton. Talk about cute!
Would a Worm go on a Walk? is a sweet 32 page, hardback book that explores 9 different animals and asks if they would do a particular human activity, such as a worm going on a walk. It is asked if turtles, penguins, lions, and more would do something, and then it is explained why they would NOT do that thing. Through simple humor, kids hear that each living thing is created in a unique way by a God who loves them.
In the traditional rhyming manner found in many children's books these days, you will find humor and silliness, but also a profound Biblical truth-
They look just as he wanted,
and they act just like they should.
He made them and he loves them,
and he calls them very good.
In the end the author ends with "God's masterpiece is YOU!"
I love this sweet book. I happen to think beautiful things happen to a child's mind when you read out loud to them. How much better when you can read to them about the love that God has for not only the creatures He created but also for THEM!? The rhyming phrases make it enjoyable to read and capture a child's attention. In addition, the illustrations are bright and cheerful, making this a beautiful book that you will cherish for years to come!
I am excited to be able to add this to our growing collection for our someday grandchildren!
And yes, even the 9 year old liked it!
