Cheryl Bond-Nelmsabout this book: Help young people focus on their own accomplishments rather than the accomplishments of others and boost their self esteem.
In this media age, young people are bombarded with reality TV, YouTube stars and the push to own the latest technology, wear the hottest designer or have the coolest sneakers.
It's easy to get lost and guided toward what others have or do rather than focus on what on their own abilities or desires.
Eric the Earthworm gets kids when they are young to help them learn to look to themselves and see what they have to offer instead of what the next person is offering.
Eric is an earthworm because he's an unassuming character. Nothing special, he thinks, until his mother helps him realize all that he can do and all that he can accomplish.
She helps him focus on his own abilities instead of looking around and focusing on others.
Without even realizing it, Eric started to envy the simple things that others can do instead of realizing the abilities that he has are just as special. He started to envy the strength that the ant demonstrates, and the green worms ability to camouflage, and the caterpillar's legs, until he took a good look at himself and realized he could do some pretty cool things too.
Young readers can benefit from this book by seeing that Eric discovered some amazing things about himself by focusing on himself instead of only focusing on others.
Eric the Earthworm encourages us all to look at ourselves and realize how special each of us really is.
