Books About Worms for Kids

Sharing is caring!

Over the past few weeks, we've been studying about worms in science. Jonah has enjoyed learning how worms help the soil by digging tunnels and breaking things down by eating them. And because he's a typical boy, he's been fascinated that dirt is full of worm "waste." We've found some really cute books at our library to go along with our study and wanted to share them with you!
