Ned the worm lives in a delicious red apple, until one day his home gets moldy and falls apart. Now Ned has to go in search of a new home, but each one he tries just isn’t the right fit.


This book is a wonderful blend of colors and fruit, with warm autumn tones and humorous text. Ned is a friendly looking worm, who just wants to find a new home. Each home he tries, from the tart lemon to the camouflage green kiwi just isn’t right. Kids can learn about colors and fruit in a very fun way. This book is great for a baby/toddler storytime as well due to the large illustrations and limited text. I would match this with songs such as “Way Up High in the Apple Tree” and “A Little Apple Seed” and the book Apple Pie ABC for a fun, fruity and seasonal storytime.


Every Wednesday I’ll be featuring a different picture book for ages ranging from infants to beginning readers. Please leave a comment with your thoughts, or recommendations.
