What fans are saying about How to Say Hello to a Worm: A First Guide to Outside:

“The ONLY Book He Wants To Read!!!  – My (3YO) son chooses this book over the other 100 in his bookcase every night! I love reading this book to him because he is actively engaged throughout. He loves asking me what strawberry is ripe enough to eat? Getting excited when the little girl pulls up the HUGE carrot! And the (playhut) for the peas, he can’t wait to build one this Spring/Summer with Daddy! 10 out of 10 recommend.” – NH, from Barnes and Noble Reviews
