In this enjoyable children’s book, Jenny Hall takes us into the fascinating world of organic farming, where tiny creatures bring the soil to life. The story follows Alice, a young girl who excitedly hunts for worms on her parents’ farm. As she does so, the reader learns about the role of worms in the growing cycle. Aimed at pre-school and Key Stage I children, it complements the National Curriculum, demonstrating basic principles, such as composting, not using toxic chemicals and planting clover to enrich the soil.
Organic Alice and the Wiggly Jiggly Worms will be of interest to parents wanting to help their young ones develop an understanding of sustainable and local food production, which will be of increasing importance in the future.
Colourful illustrations by the author enrich the message. Jenny Hall has been cultivating organic vegetables for box schemes since 1998 and runs Sow & Grow Organics, along with her partner Keith. The book is inspired by this venture, as well as her young daughter, Alice.
