137. ” Diary of a Worm” by Doreen Cronin


A few posts ago I shared with you our excitement about a very atypical journal, written by a spider. Today, I have another unusual diary for you, written by Worm, who happens to be Spider’s friend, actually. You think worms have no thoughts? Think again. They are very deep creatures. And they can dig deeply too, especially when the fishing season ushers in and they are not ready to turn into bait quite yet. Giant Birds playing hopscotch scare them even more than shovels, by the way. But they do like showing up in the park and scaring children.  Worms are good at dancing hokey pokey, too. Do you know which part of the song they do best? Apparently, it is fun to be a worm, as the diary author says. Worms don’t need to go to the dentist. But on the other hand, they can’t chew gum and that is not so cool.

There are other things that Worm finds not so cool either, but I don’t want to spill all the beans. And besides, Doreen Cronin did a better job “ghostwriting” the Worm’s diary and Harry Bliss added lost of amusing pictures. You might prefer reading the real thing to my commentary. Have fun and play hopscotch responsibly!
