#1 New York Times Bestseller!

This hilarious picture book from the bestselling, acclaimed author-illustrator team of Doreen Cronin and Harry Bliss tells the adventures of a worm through his daily diary entries.

This is the diary of a worm. This worm 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.

                  my mother read this book to my younger sister and I began listening. afterwards I read it three more times. I love the worms view of the world, and his life.

                      Dairy of a worm by Doreen Cronin is a book about a worm telling all of what happened every month.It's very funny because the worm eats his homework because he forgot his lunch. He thinks digging tunnels helps the earth breathe. This book is great for kids because it's very funny. The worm is the main character he is in all pages. My favorite part was the first two pages it was the funniest. You should read this book it's very good so go to the library and get the book. It's great for all ages.😉
