Unwrapping Some Illustrations for You


The Book

This series of books is meant to help parents and caregivers as they navigate their children through difficult issues and feelings that they may have and make them more understandable for the child.  

The author has assigned sweet rhyming names to the insect characters and the bright, expressive illustrations will bring the message home. 

Perm Worm arises every morning and does the same things, in the same sequence, in the same way, every single day.  He loves learning about space and the planets and can talk for hours about his favourite subject but he has a very difficult time relating to the other insects. He finds making friends very troublesome. 

 "He doesn't know when to laugh with them or when to ask if they are OK."  "He finds it even harder to listen to them and not want to talk about space!"

One day his whole world changes.  He arrives at school and his familiar teacher is ... gone!  A new face, that he has not seen before, peers back at him.  This change was humungous to Perm Worm and he lost all ability to concentrate or even eat his lunch that day, he just wanted to go home. 

He feels betrayed,  abandoned, angry and helpless at this turn of events.  Luckily when he returns to Grassroutes School the next day  Mr. Cough Moth, the substitute teacher, helps Perm Worm work through his feelings and gives him a strategy to do so.  The new temporary teacher had sensed how his struggling student was feeling and came to his rescue.  

This book will be a valuable addition in a classroom or elementary school library.  Children often need help when sorting out their ever-changing feelings and emotions.  It can be used as a conversation starter and be a wonderful support for teaching an important life skill.  I highly recommend this book.
