Review

Much like the title suggests, this picture book follows Carl the earthworm on his quest to find out why he does what he does. Although asking a variety of animals, they only know their own motivations in life and are unable to help Carl, until one day, Carl recognizes the meaning of his own life. The watercolor illustrations offer a beautiful backdrop to this informative book. The book’s focus on intentional environmental understanding also encourages children to help the earth while learning about those that are already helping it. Adults can use this book informatively and cultivate kids to be environmentally-friendly. Recommended, Anna Jennings, Centennial Library Intern, Cedarville University
