2010 Award
Yucky Worms
( by Vivian French/illus. Jessica Ahlberg, Candlewick $16.99 Score: )

It may be hard to imagine a whole book just on the subject of worms, but, every page turn in Yucky Worms reveals another interesting fact that is likely to grab the attention of even the whimpiest reader. Told as a conversation between a grandmother gardener and her curious grandson, this is a work of non-fiction with a touch of humor and a lot of science. The underground images give you a slice of underground life that brings the lowly worm into focus as a positive force often overlooked. French also manages to take down a few myths about worms that have been around for years. This is what young science should look and sound like!
