Staff Reviews


What a delight! The Greedy Worm feels like a classic picture book that you’ve loved your whole life, yet it’s still full of imagination and surprise. What do you get when you combine an apple, a cohort of bugs, and one greedy worm? A perfectly illustrated, wordlessly imparted, life-long lesson about sharing, caring, nurturing, and sheltering one another. The kind of picture book that you’ll reflect on throughout life as you navigate how to be a friend.

— Chris Lee

Description


From celebrated illustrator Jeff Newman comes a delightfully funny wordless picture book about a very greedy worm, a very large apple, and the importance of sharing with friends.

The greedy worm has his eye on a very big apple and he does NOT want to share with any of the other hungry bugs. In fact he eats the whole thing himself in one giant chomp to keep them away. But when a bird starts eyeing the now plump (and sluggish) greedy worm, he’ll need those bugs he snubbed to keep the feaster from becoming the feast. And he might just learn a thing or two about sharing in the process…
