Environment, poetry, comment, children's books,
Yes! You can write a story about anything ~ including worms! Wisley Gardens continues to invite me to be a guest author during the summer school break. Next time, I will be reading Wollee The Worm. After all. bees and butterflies get all the press. But everything in the garden serves a purpose, including how Wollee-the-Worm helps bring food to our table. He does a very important job helping soil to breathe ~ making it rich and healthy for growing things.
I have added some new features to these little books. My aim with the Pa Dug & Rosie series all along has been to bring poetry to science. To this end, I have added a quiz and some fun facts to the books that tell another story alongside the rhyme, rhythm and onomatopoeia! Little learners can learn to enjoy the fun of words as well as love the story that Science has to tell. The garden and its creatures are full of natural magic. I hope little ones will learn to love even the worm.
And the worm looked up and seemed to say
In his worm-like, wriggly, squiggly way,
“I eat the soil, rubbish too.
I love it just as much as you
Love chocolate!” he said with a grin.
“I love the stuff you waste and bin.”
