Young readers are in for a fun and learning experience as author Anat Hirsch brings forth The Worm, a picture book that teaches children about nouns and its different kinds. Made available through Xlibris, this educational book is an indispensable tool for elementary teachers and parents alike.
The tale introduces readers to Amanda, the worm who returned from a long trip from Africa. Along the way, she met a lot of old acquaintances and some new strangers: Donna the pig, Alex the toad, the turtle, the tiger, the burdensome fly, the possessive bird, the unconfident eagle, and many more. However, she found all of them offensive—it made her cry. After a while, with the help of the wise owl, she knew what she was destined to do. Could she achieve her dream?
With the use of pictures, colored letters, tables, and an engaging story, The Worm not only widens young children’s vocabulary and grammar knowledge, but also entertains. This book will be featured at this year’s New York Library Association Book Exhibit in Saratoga Springs, NY on November 2-5, 2010. For more information, log on to Xlibris.com.
