Ew Yuck! by Kelly Mrocki
Meet Ew Yuck, the tiger worm. Now, upon meeting him, your first reaction may be “ew, yuck!” See, that’s what everyone else calls him. But if you knew how important his role is in taking care of the environment, you might change your tune. People always scream at Ew Yuck and throw him back into the garden. No wonder he feels so lonely. He doesn’t know where to go or what to do. He knows he has a vital job, but he doesn’t know what it is.
Thankfully, one day, Ew Yuck comes across a young girl named Chloe and her brother Aiden. They don’t call him Ew yuck or yell at him; they are kind. Everything changes for this tiger worm when Chloe and Aiden introduce him to the worm farm at Grandma’s house.
Ew Yuck is the third title written and illustrated by Kelly Mrocki. Inspired by her niece and nephew, this book encourages children to recognise the value in all creatures, great and small. As a valuable resource for early childhood learning, Ew Yuck urges people of all ages to respect every living thing and support the future of our planet
