There's a supercute picture book called Diary of a Worm that's written from a worm's perspective. He tries new things, has friends, etc. He mentions in the book that one of the sad things about being a worm is that you can't chew gum.
One of my little guys today wrote this response in his reading notebook:
Title: Diary of a Worm
The big idea is you may think that worms have better lives than yours but his is worser.
Does that make you feel better or what?
