Yucky Worms is a great intro to gardening with worms.Yucky Worms Book Review

The Yucky Worms book is the story of a young boy being introduced to worms by his Grandma while they are working in the garden.  It is nicely illustrated and is a fun story for kids. This book is very informative and educational–a lot of good facts about worms.  Even adults can learn from Yucky Worms as they read it to their children.

This is about garden worms not composting worms.

One clarification though is that this book is about the worms that are outside in the garden.  They are different from Red Wigglers which are the composting worms.  The main difference is that earthworms in the garden dig tunnels and aerate the soil.  Composting worms just kind of mass together and compost kitchen scraps in the worm bin.  They don’t burrow and dig tunnels.  Composting worms live in manure piles.

If you would like to learn more about red wigglers aka composting worms Worms Eat My Garbage: How to Set Up and Maintain a Worm Composting System is also an amazing book for adults.
