I used this book with an 8 year old boy who struggles with reading and it kept his attention - no small feat. It also introduces the diary genre to students who might not otherwise have encountered it. Lots of potential for spin off activities - including composting and writing their own diary entries.

First, this book is NOT written by Doreen Cronin nor illustrated by Harry Bliss. They are the creators of the original Diary of a Worm picture book. This book is a spin off based on that book. It is written as an early reader. I love that they took great characters and turned them into something interesting for early readers.

In this book, Worm's class is planning a birthday party for their teacher. Worm sets out to find the perfect gift and with a little help from his friends, Fly and Spider, he succeeds.

This book is a level one reader. The sentences are short and simple for easy reading. Yet there is a sprinkling of harder concepts to stretch the reader. The story is from Worm's perspective which makes it interesting and has plenty of humor to enjoy.

I was originally going to give this four stars, but I am adding an extra star for interest level. If more leveled readers were this interesting, I think more kids would be chomping at the bit to read!
