LITTLE big Insects: Perm Worm and A Different Day

by

A colourfully illustrated duo of children’s books take young readers to an animal world where it’s okay to have a disability and be different!

In Perm Worm and A Different Day, we meet Perm Worm who struggles with every day life. You see, Perm Worm has autism which is something that just makes it a little harder for him to cope when anything changes in his day to day life. One day, Perm Worm has a very hard day and he struggles to find a way to show it. Luckily, with the support of his family, there may be a way forward. It just takes a big amount of courage from a small worm. 

Brilliant Books

A lovely children’s book. What’s different about this series of books is that they take an issue that can be difficult for children to understand and for parents to explain and normalise it.
All the characters in this book have fun names and the illustrations are fantastic.
The story explains how Perm Worm needs routine in his day and how hard it can be for him when things suddenly change. It explains very well why change is difficult for him and how his friends and family can help him over come the challenges he faces.

My son is a little young to understand the themes in this book but loved the illustrations, they are bright and fun.

I would certainly recommend this book to parents and teachers alike.

This book is an exceptional tool for educators and parents alike. The bright, bold and exciting colours used in the illustrations will appeal to young children. The adorable and engaging insect characters will draw them to the story.

The story involves Perm Worm who does not like change. He does the same thing at the same time every single day. He finds making friends at school difficult. He's never quite sure when to do things. He doesn't know when it's okay to laugh. He finds it hard to listen when others are talking.

His problems really start when he has a supply teacher at Grassroutes School. Instead of Sweetle Beetle, he finds Mr. Cough Moth and he doesn't like this. He's very upset when he gets home and doesn't know how to express himself. Mr. Cough Moth has ideas of how Perm Worm can cope better and assists him in his struggle to talk about his feelings.

This book will be valuable to anyone working with children and helping them cope with and express their feelings.

This is a cute book about Perm Worm, but I really wanted the words to be along with the illustrations instead of on pages by themselves. I do really love the illustrations and all the bright colors on each page!

Perm Worm likes to follow a strict routine. One day his routime gets broken and he struggles to get through his day. I loved the use of emotion cards and how great they made perm worm feel. This is a great story both for entertaining children and improving their self-esteem.

Brilliant inspiration to young children. The author has taken inspiration from children with disabilities and focused on inspiring them. Well written and brilliant meaning for a story.
