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.

Review 2020 red

Perm Worm is Autistic. He likes everything to stay the same every day. He gets up at the same time, puts on the same sock, and eats the same breakfast. He goes to a wonderful school and has a lovely teacher who greats him at the door every day.

One day when Perm Worm gets to school his teacher, Sweetle Beetle, isn’t there to greet him and a different teacher, Mr. Cough Moth, is stood in her place. Perm Worm is confused and doesn’t know how to handle this change causing him distress and upset. He doesn’t understand how to convey his emotions and so when he arrives home he yells at his mum and dad.

The next day the new teacher sits down with Perm Worm and explains why he is there and gives him a way to help him let others know how he is feeling. This makes Perm Worm feel a little better about the change.

Being the parent of an autistic teenager I think this book is such a valuable asset not only for autistic children but for other children to understand how autistic children think and the ways that they view life and issues they have with change. I also think it would be an asset for children who don’t have autism but who have trouble with understanding and sharing their feelings with others.

I loved the full-page illustrations that are brightly coloured and bring the characters to life. Plus I love the pink text which was easy to read. This book would be a wonderful addition to any school library and I now can’t wait to read the other books in the Little Big Insects series.
