So begins this humorous and imaginative picture book that introduces children to the idea that animals are uniquely created by a loving and wise God. Would a Worm Go on a Walk?, with its colorful, comical illustrations, is a fresh, fun way to teach young children that God created all things very good. He gave all the animals, and children, too, wonderful qualities and unique strengths. Children will giggle over the ridiculous scenarios presented, and they will come away with the knowledge that we all are loved and special. Ages 4-7.

A British illustrator, I Graduated in 1990 from Oxford Brookes University followed by several years working exclusively for two major greeting card publishers. Since then I have worked across the board illustrating children’s book, in Advertising, Editorial, Publishing and Design. It keeps me busy!

I have a passion for the environment and live in an earth sheltered house. At the weekends you might spot me under the wind turbine or mowing the roof.

 

My Impressions:

Would A Worm Go on A Walk is one of the best children’s books I have read all year! The combination of Hannah Hall’s clever and witty rhyme and Bill Bolton’s colorfully whimiscal illustrations will keep your child’s attention even as he/she learn about God’s creative wisdom. I loved each what if question posed — it reminded me so much of my inquisitive youngest child who still asks mind-stretching and hilarious questions at the ripe old age of 23. Each scenario leads up to the final lesson of the God who made all things good, especially us! So get ready for a family reading time filled with giggles and guffaws and additional would or could questions.

Highly recommended.

Audience: children ages 5-8.
