The Bookworm and Other Stories
Tales for Children About Friendship and Kindness
by Leslie Brazier Smit

A spider and a fly. A boy and an ant. A dog and a beaver. They may seem like unlikely companions, but they’ll soon learn that they have more in common than they think. When a creature is in need, help often comes from the most unexpected places. The Bookworm and Other Stories is a collection of stories both short and long about animals, birds, and insects who come together in kindness and friendship. Kids will learn fun facts about the animal kingdom while laughing at the antics of these delightful characters. In the end, they’ll see that we can be friends with everyone, regardless of our differences.
