Don't poke a worm till it wiggles by Celia Warren

A&C Black, 2014. ISBN 9781472900234.
Highly recommended for readers aged 8+ and would be great to model rhyming poetry in the classroom. Don't Poke a Worm till it Wiggles is a poetry book full of worms. The poems describe what they look like and how they act. There are several that follow the same pattern as more common nursery rhymes and children will be smiling and tongue tied as they practise their fluency.
The poems will engage all readers whether a parent/adult is reading it to them or they are reading independently.
