Would a Worm Go on a Walk? Review

Would a Worm Go on a Walk? 
Written by Hannah C. Hall
Illustrated by Bill Bolton

Really? Would it? Oh how I miss the days of reading aloud to my children. Just yesterday, my almost nineteen year old daughter came in reading Runaway Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown. That's something that doesn't happen anymore. She was in tears. It's a book I often read to her as a small child, but this time she was reading it with new eyes... eyes to see the love not just of a mother but of our Holy Heavenly Father God. Good children's books are like that. They speak to us when we're young and when we're older.

When I saw the cute little worm on this cover, I just couldn't resist this book. I know. I know. I don't have any littles at home anymore, but I still love picture books. I think this one will be a gift for a friend who's having a baby soon.

This is a big book with an embossed dust jacket. I like it!

This is a series of questions and answers about different animals... all written in rhyme. We all know how much littles love rhymes. Who am I kidding, we all love rhymes. Don't we? It's more fun to read aloud. Great job Hannah C. Hall.

The illustrations are just flat adorable. They're bright, cheerful and fun. Gotta love them Bill Bolton!

God is given credit for his perfect design of both animals and people.

I highly recommend this great children's picture book. Read it to your children, grandchildren, or give it as a gift. 


About the book:
“Would a worm go on a walk, if you could lead him down the street? Would he wear his tiny tennies, if he had two worm-sized feet?”

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 created all things very good. He gave all the animals, and children, too, 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.
