Ned's New Home

Foreword Review — Sept / Oct 2009

Ned is a green worm who lives in an apple and loves the color red. So, what’s the problem? Ned’s apple is going bad; it’s leaking; it’s going to mush. He needs to find a new home. Ned packs a suitcase and heads out into the big world of real estate. He finds and tests a pear, a watermelon, blueberries, a lemon, and oh so many other fruity fiascos. Along the way, we learn about color, shape, size, and the names of fruits. Deliberately illustrated and written, this book shouldn’t dilly-dally on its way to pre-K libraries and Head Start schools.
