The other day we received an advanced copy of a new book from Ryan T. Higgins called What About Worms!? This adorable book is perfect for younger kids to read on their own. Andrew is actually a bit old for this book but he enjoyed reading it nonetheless. The book is actually part of the An elephant and Piggie Like Reading Book series that is put out in conjunction with Mo Willems the creator of Elephant and Piggie. Mo selects different books and they have intros by Elephant and Piggie as well as wrap ups at the end. I like how these characters bookend the story.
Ryan T. Higgins has created one of my favorite characters, Bruce who is a very grumpy bear. The Bruce series of books are fantastic. Ryan really captures the look and feel of characters showing great emotion and also lots of humor.
In What About Worms!? we have a tiger who is afraid of worms. Despite being big and strong and a tiger he is still afraid of the little guys. So he goes through a series of events that cause him to lose it and run away being afraid of worms. When the worms show up the tables turn for some very funny moments. I think kids will get a kick out of this fun book. It comes out on May 19, 2020 from Hyperion Books for Children and will be about $10. Be on the lookout for this book.
