About the Book
Worms Are A Yummy Snack: A Story of Patience, Anger, and Joy
Worms Are A Yummy Snack: A Story of Patience, Anger, and Joy is about Chase's first fishing trip with his father. He is very excited about fishing but gets more than he bargains for when things don't go according to plan.
The book helps young readers understand the importance of resilience and perseverance when learning a new skill, and introduces them to the art of fishing and its potential to turn into a yummy family dinner! This delightful story showcases a loving relationship between father and son, and allows parents, caregivers and young readers to positively discuss themes of patience, expression and management of emotions and dealing with failure.
“In a universe where Black fathers and Black sons are seemingly forever under attack, here is a humble and beautiful book about that relationship between a boy and a man. It does not matter what is going on in the outside world. What matters is the love and bond between this father and son. Worms Are A Yummy Snack: A Story of Patience, Anger, and Joy is the kind of book I wish I had as a fatherless boy: a story that shows us what does indeed exist, and what is also possible, in spite of all.”
