1. No worm drinks or bathing.
James: This is Skinny! Oh, I think he wants a drink. I’m making him a pond!
Papa: Oh..no. Worm don’t like drinks, it usually drowns them…
2. Worms + Chickens= only good for chickens.
Papa: What will happen if chickens get in the garden?
Leland: The chickens will eat the garden!
James: And they’ll dig the garden for worms…and they might find Skinny!! And he’s such a nice worm.
3. Worms are not for your bedroom.
Mama: No, you can’t bring him inside. He needs dirt to live!…..No, not just for a little while.
As “Skinny” is lovingly patted into the ground the boys say: You’ll like it here. Goodbye Skinny! We’ll miss you!
Hope you’re having a great summer and finding lots of wriggly friends in your garden!
