Three fun facts about worms:
1. The largest worms in the world are 10 feet long (that's feet, not inches!).
2. Worms move with the help of tiny bristles.
3. A million worms can live in one small park.
A lot more facts can be found in We Dig Worms, an adorable and interesting picture book for ages 4-8 that turns the worm "eww" factor into a sense of awe and respect for the hard-working cold-blooded creatures. As a fun side note, Author Kevin McCloskey, an illustration professor at Kutztown University of Pennsylvania, used paper bags as his canvas for the book's charming paintings, "because, just like worms, he believes in recycling."
