Review: The Worm Whisperer by Betty Hicks


 The Worm Whisperer

You've heard of Horse Whisperers and Dog Whisperers, but Ellis thinks he might be a Worm Whisperer!

Ellis Coffey loves animals. He spends so much time outdoors that sometimes he thinks he can talk with them. When he discovers a caterpillar that seems to follow his directions, he knows he has a chance to win the annual Woolly Worm race. The prize money is $1,000--exactly the amount of the deductible for his dad's back surgery. If Ellis is right and he can train his woolly worm to be the fastest in the county, he's sure can solve all his family's problems. But when you're trying to talk to insects, nothing is as simple as it seems.

From Betty Hicks, author of the Gym Shorts series for new readers, comes a story of friendship, family, and hidden talents that might be more useful than they first seemed.

I won this book through Good Reads First Reads Program! I was so excited too. My kids are getting close to reading chapter books and I want to have a stack ready when the time comes. I want to share my love of reading with my children. 

Well, back to the book! I loved it. The story is solid. The characters are likable and the pictures throughout add a lot to the story. I cannot wait for both my boys to read this story. It teaches valuable lessons about hard work, family and love. It is everything I look for in this genre. If you have kids, pick up this book and read it together. You will not be disappointed!
