Lucinda’s Wormy Journey
About the Book
Ferdie and Squirmy are a little out of sorts. For worms, their skin is dried up, and they’re feeling lazy. It’s been awhile since they’ve seen rain, and their bodies are suffering. The two friends think they should look for a fresh mud hole. Their pal, Birdie, agrees. But the worms have little sense of direction, and GPS isn’t exactly available for the trio of would-be adventurers.
Lucinda the butterfly hears their plight and offers to help them on their quest. This little band of earthworms follows the magical butterfly on an interesting, and often-times challenging, journey to find a new home.
In this picture book for children, Ferdie, Squirmy, and Birdie learn to solve problems, work as a team, and achieve success all while enjoying a grand adventure.
