    This is a very cute story that is told from a worm's perspective. It goes through the year and explains what worms are doing during that time, but also having them do stuff humans would do; like school.

    Funny and cute.

    No matter what or whom, diaries are always interesting and thrilling to read.This time, I came to read a worm's diary. It was informative to acknowledge that worms are not boring, reckless and free animals. In fact, they are very very busy. Like humans, they have to go to school and get good grades. How do you suppose they would be able to tell us their journey in a diary otherwise?It was funny and adorable.

    Check out more picture book reviews @ Perspective of a WriterIn this diary of a young worm boy he explains he he's not that different from you or me: He lives with his parents, plays with his friends, and even goes to school.I'm not really a fan of the art style but it fit the comic book like diary entries. And my nephew was quite enchanted, particularly when spider saves worm after convincing him to walk upside down! He loved all the facts particularly the ones having to do with numbers! It was [...]

    Diary of a Worm is a book for children in preschool through first grade. It is a humorous story in diary form of the everyday life of a worm. The worm’s humanistic qualities are shown as he chronicles the family’s vacation to Compost Island, his first day of school, his report card, information about his family, and his first tunnel, among others. In his diary, the worm also describes information that his mom tells him always to remember, why it is good to be a worm, why it is bad to be a wo [...]

    Tunnel into the hilarious world of a young worm through a series of laugh-out-loud diary entries chronicling his life. Join worm as he goes to school, tries to play the hockey pokey (think about that for a second), and harasses his sister ("no matter how long you look at your face, it will always look like your rear"). Ecological message makes this an easy-pick for Earth Day story times. CIP: A young worm discovers, day by day, that there are some very good and some not so good things about bei [...]

    Ok seriously I really liked this book. It was such an original idea. The way that things were explained from a worm's POV was genius!

    Heather
    Oh, the laughter. The boys love worms. They especially love worms that write funny books. I enjoyed reading this because it was witty and surprisingly funny. The illustrations are fantastic. They've looked through the book many times since.One caution - there is a part where the worm tells his sister her face looks like her rear end, with accompanying dead-on illustration. Being the crass person that I am, I almost lost it, but my 5-year-old said in his most indignant voice, "that's a really mea [...]

    Hilarious and adorable! Diary entries by a little boy worm with appearances by his family (I love Grandpa worm!) and his friend the spider. Super funny. I would have loved this as a child since I was always digging in the dirt and playing with worms. Love the subtle eco-friendly message conveyed that shows how worms are important to the earth and that even the smallest creatures have a role in helping and protecting the planet. :)We're very small, and sometimes people forget that we're even here [...]

    Diary of a Worm is a fun, accessible read for students. I loved the diary format and the creativity and humor in every entry. This would be a great text to engage students before a lesson on insects, especially because it invites the reader to relate to the insects (often detested creatures). The vivid illustrations and comedic style gave me the feeling of reading a comic book. I think this book will be a quick and engaging read for many kinds of young readers.

    This is such a cute little children's book. We laugh and laugh every time we read it. Our family's favorite part is when he writes about his sister. No matter how long she looks in the mirror her face will always look the same as her rear end. Worm's friend spider thought it was pretty funny, his mother, however did not.

    It is gooooood

    I liked his mother

    Hilarious perspective on a worms life. He makes a diary of his life, what he does and what he likes and doesn't like. His best friend is a spider and they are very different. He lives with his parents and goes to school just like us. My 7 year old son and I laughed through the whole book. His favorite part was when the worm tells his sister that her face will always look like her rear end!

    My kids loved this book. It tells the funny life stories from a worm's perspective. It is enriched with imagination and details. How do you dance when you have no legs and arms? The book offers examples of how creativity and imagination can make writing fun to read.

    ‘Diary of a worm’ is about a young adolescent worm who writes about life in his diary every couple of months. We see him befriend a spider and try to hang upside down, along with his trouble of being a worm and eating all your homework. When Spider tries his hand at digging in the dirt, Spider realizes that he is not the greatest digger and leaves it to Worm. This book has a great sense of humor that makes you laugh from page to page at all the ridiculous situations this worm finds himself i [...]

    The title describes the content of this book perfectly. It is the diary of a young male worm who's name he never discloses. He writes of days spent with his friend spider,his dreams,goals,experiences at worm school and things he learns from his parents and grandfather as well as his interactions with humans. I found this book to be very creative, both the style of writing and illustrations are imaginative and fun. Some things I liked in particular are that the first and last two pages of the boo [...]

    My library has Diary of a Worm, Diary of a Spider, and Diary of a Fly, but I chose Diary of a Worm for my bug-themed storytime because of the line, "My older sister thinks she's so pretty. I told her that no matter how much time she spends looking in the mirror, her face will always look just like her rear end." That cracked me up. The Diary of a books are a little wordy, but great for storytime because you can always paper clip the pages together that you want to skip, and it's easy to skip sin [...]

    The Diary of a Fly is a story about a fly named fly. She is very spunky and loves her best friends Worm and Spider. She keeps a diary of her life, and begins the story writing about how she is nervous for the first day of school. She learns how to fly and loves school; in the end she decides she wants to be a super hero. She realizes that she probably will never be a super hero like she wanted but that it is good to have big dreams and believe in yourself. This E-book was well done. One sentence [...]

    Suka sama ilustrasinya. Buku ini ditujukan untuk 1tahun dengan pendamping dan lima tahun ke atas dengan membaca mandiri.ceritanya lucu, tapi lebih baik lagi kalau dengan catatan harian itu lebih mengenal cacing. Meskipun fiksi, tapi cerita tentang cacing yang menari di pesta dansa sekolahrasanyaaa, agak kurang sesuai yaaa untuk anak-anak pre school. mungkin menari dan bernyanyi bersama teman-teman di sekolah lebih sesuaika dengan catatan harian di akhir buku ini Tidak selalu mudah menjadi seekor [...]

    I absolutely love reading this book to my students. They love the character in the book and how funny it is. This book is easy for the kids to relate to because it refers to things that they know like school and the dentist and makes it funny. It is a great resource to use when teaching students about worms and what they do for the earth. It also teaches them a little about other animals like spiders and ants and how they are different from worms. The pictures in this book are so detailed and cu [...]

    This is the diary . . . of a worm. Surprisingly, a worm is not that different from you or me: He lives with his parents, plays with his friends, and even goes to school. But unlike you or me, he never has to take a bath, he gets to eat his homework, and because he doesn't have legs, he just can't do the hokey pokey -- no matter how hard he tries. Oh, and his head looks a lot like his rear end.Cute, Clever book. I am not sure how it will play out as a read aloud, but know the kids will love to lo [...]

    By Taylor and JosephThis book is about a worm that writes a diary about his life. The problem is that his dad and mom tell him that there are three important things to know: 1. The Earth gives us everything we need. 2. When we dig tunnels, we help take care of the Earth. 3. Never bother Daddy when he is eating the newspaper! This would be a great book to read for Earth Day! On March 29, he tried to teach a spider to dig. First he got his legs stuck in the dirt and then he swallowed a bunch of di [...]

    We love the books "Diary of a Worm," "Diary of Spider," "Diary of a Fly" by Doreen Cronin. They are very funny and entertaining and yet there are always a few facts thrown in here and there. My kids also relate to the main character - worm is a kid who goes to school, interacts with family members, goes on vacation.There is a subtle "be good to the earth" environmental theme in the book, and the facts presented in the book are around this theme.

    There have been tow more opposite friends than Worm and Spider. Each are unique in many ways but not the same ways as each other.Worm keeps a diary which is hilarious to read. Written by Doreen Cronin, illustrated by Harry Bliss and published as a Joanna Cotler Book.#PB #friendship #unique #funny #worms
