Product/Toy Name: The Wiggly Jiggly Worm book by Cassandra Kelvin and Jason Kelvin
What they say: When I was little, I always had my big brother and sister looking out for me…well most of the time! Now we are grown up, things haven’t changed. With my love of writing, and many children’s stories written but never brought to life, I decided it was time to get my big brother on board. With several years of experience running his own design company, Jason was thrilled to get back to his artistic roots illustrating The Wiggly Jiggly Worm. Having worked together in the past, we knew that we would make a great team! The Wiggly Jiggly Worm is the first story that I have published. My little boy Zachary, loves it and gave me the inspiration to share it with you. We hope that you enjoy it as much as we have enjoyed creating it. – Cassandra Kelvin.
Written in a creative and language-sensitive way, with vivid illustrations and a carefully chosen vocabulary – Dr Stella Mavroveli – expert in children’s cognitive and socio-emotional development.
What I say: This is a fabulous story, my daughter loved it, the illustrations are really fun and brought the story to life. We often sing there is a worm at the bottom of the garden so this story was perfect for us. It has been a favourite bedtime story since the first read, in fact I almost know it off by heart already!!!!
Favourite thing: The moral behind the story – you may long to be someone or something different but they may long to be you too, so be happy in your own skin.
Worst thing: My sanity is in question, following reading the book so often! A firm favourite in our house!
Did it keep your child entertained and for how long? Yes throughout the story she sit attentively and listens and joins in with her wiggling!
Overall Comment: A fun story with a great moral behind the story. Great illustrations.
