Each and every one of us is unique. When God created all of his creatures, He did so with particular reasons in mind–nothing was done by accident. The topic at hand can prove to be an eye opening learning experience for children, as they start to notice the many differences around them. Would a Worm Go on a Walk? by Hannah C. Hall, offers kids a fun and fresh perspective on how God created us all for a special purpose.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
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. So begins this humorous and imaginative picture book that introduces children to the idea that animals are uniquely created by a loving and wise God. Would a Worm Go on a Walk?, with its colorful, comical illustrations, is a fresh, fun way to teach young children that God gave all the animals--and each of us--wonderful qualities and unique strengths. Children will giggle over the ridiculous scenarios presented, and they will come away with the knowledge that we all are loved and special. Ages 4 to 7.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Hannah C. Hall estimates that she has read approximately 4,500 bedtime stories to her children over the last few years. She is thankful to get to add her own books to their daily rotation. Hannah and her husband, Josh, have four children and live in a small town in Arkansas.
We are very fond of Hannah C. Hall's literary works in our home. Would a Worm Go on a Walk? is a little different than some of the other books we've read by her. This book offers an amusing take on how God created everything for a specific purpose–with a little science lesson also included. Witty questions and answers will help children learn why rhinos don't need raincoats, why lady bugs don't like to froo-froo, and of course why a worm might not go on a walk.
Children will also delight in the fun cartoon illustrations by Bill Bolton. As they read, they'll observe animals doing the oddest and most off the wall things. Just when you think things couldn't get any sillier, they do.
This book was a blast to read! With all of the humor throughout, it actually ends on an endearing note about God's most perfect creation of all. In an effort to keep things a surprise, I won't give too much away. It's important to remind children about their purpose and why God gave them their unique qualities. Would a Worm Go on a Walk? offers a nice reminder of this, with a bit of comedy in between.
