My boy and I always take note of books
written in rhyme. This picture book
rhymes whilst extolling the versatility
of Superworm. A fun read aloud, with predictable
rhymes and a pattern
to appeal to the young
(or older child clinging to picture books)
reader with autism.
My Son's Review:
There was a toad on the road. Superworm became a lasso to pull the toad.
Superworm then became a skipping rope for animals to play on.
An animal was going to sink into the well.
Superworm became a fishing line to rescue her. A crow put Superworm in his beak. Superworm’s friends tried to rescue him.
When Superworm came back, he became a swing! Then a slide!
Superworm even became a belt! And a hat! And an ac-ro-bat!
Hip, hip, hooray for Superworm!
