15th October Worm Day

Last week Australia made a momentous decision to allow same-sex marriage and we were talking in the library about what books we could put out on display to celebrate this. We thought of Worm Loves Worm and the lovely conversation in it about who will be the bride and who will be the groom. Then we went off on a tangent and started chatting about how many picture books had worms as main characters or as the topic. I then thought surely there is a 'worm day' and looked it up. It was on the 15th October and we missed it! So here I am writing it up so that next year we will be well prepared to celebrate it.

These books are in our library and they are perfect for celebrating worms. Firstly picture books:
Diary of a Worm by Doreen Cronin and  Harry Bliss
The Worm Who Knew Karate by Jill Lever and Terry Denton
Worm  by Nicki Greenberg
Worm Weather by Jean Taft and Matt Hunt
I Can Only Draw Worms by Will Mabbitt
Noodle and Lou by Liz Garton Scanlon and Arthur Howard
•  I Won't Eat That by Christopher Silas Neal
Superworm by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler
Rooting For You by Susan Hood and Matthew Cordell
Yucky Worms by Vivian French and Jessica Ahlberg
•  The Worm by Elise Gravel

Then there's all the chapter books:
Snail and Worm by Tina Kugler (series)
Boobela and Worm by Joe Friedman and Sam Childs (series)
Marty McGuire Digs Worms by Kate Messner and Brian Floca
Dirty Bertie Worms by Alan MacDonald and David Roberts
Yuck's Pet Worm by Matt and Dave
They Didn't Teach Me This in Worm School  by Simone Lia
How to Eat Fried Worms by Thomas Rockwell

Now add some great non-fiction with amazing worm photographs, a book with instructions for making a worm farm, some books on compost and you'll have a great display.
