What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Kathy and Karen are not only authors, but teachers too. They were doing a unit on shapes and needed a story to go along with that unit. They sat down and wrote Wiggle Worm’s Shape Adventure. They took their written story to work and read it to their class. The kids loved it even though there were no pictures for them to see. Karen and Kathy sent it in to PDMI and they loved the story. That is how Wiggle Worm came to life.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Fiction: We tried to come up with characters that kids would like. So, we picked creatures that are seen in every day life. Each character/creature was selected and gave a name. We have a Squirrel in our book he became Chester Squirrel, Shaggy Dog, Tiny Ant, Flounder Fish, Black Crow and Wiggle Worm, of course. We felt that children would love these characters/creatures because they see Squirrels, dogs, fish, crows, and worms. These characters/creatures were fun to work with!
Wiggle Worm wandered around his room.
“I have to find shapes for school tomorrow,” he said in a soft whisper. He crawled over slowly to his leaf bed and laid his head on something soft and round.
Wiggle Worm began to cry, “Boo hoo.”
“Why are you crying?” Black Crow asked, as he landed on the window sill.
Wiggle Worm wiped the tears from his eyes. He looked up at his feathered friend. “I can’t find any shapes for school tomorrow!” Wiggle Worm exclaimed.
“Oh,” said Black Crow. “What about that thing your head was laying on?” He asked, trying to help.
Wiggle Worm looked at Black Crow, then at his pillow.
“It’s a circle!” He shouted, dancing around. “Thanks,” Wiggle Worm said.
“Goodbye!” shouted Black Crow. “Happy to have helped you friend!” He added as he flew away.
Wiggle Worm stuffed his round pillow into a bag.
“I need six shapes for school tomorrow,” he thought to himself. “So how many more do I need? Six shapes minus one circle leaves five shapes to find,” he counted.
Wiggle Worm slowly crawled to the front door. “Mom!” He yelled. I’m going out to find some shapes!”
“Okay, but be home by supper!” She yelled back.
