What does it take for a worm to get an apple? Sometimes, and in this case especially, a little ingenuity and determination.
In Toto’s Apple, a Phaidon publishing hardcover book recommended for children ages 2-5, we witness some admirable qualities like creativity, commitment, and problem-solving coming from a rather small hero: Toto the worm.
How will he get from his perch to the neighboring tree where the delicious apple hangs?
“And so this hilariously expressive little worm gets busy creating plan after plan to reach his desired meal. His crafty strategies are successfully executed but miserably unproductive…until the opportunity presents itself and Toto seizes the moment without foresight.” – Phaidon Children’s Books
Read along to see the outcome of Toto’s adventure while enjoying the simple but eye-catching illustrations from author-illustrator Mathieu Lavoie. Parents and children will find the book humorous and surprising, and one never knows, it might inspire some creativity in your child the next time a tricky situation arises. Enjoy!
