Wonderful Worms by Linda Glaser is an excellent non-fiction book for read aloud in a Pre-K or kindergarten classroom. The illustrations are lovely and really give young learners a close up view of a worm's habitat. There are just one or two sentences on each page. Each provides simple facts about worms.
"And they need food, just like I do.
But they eat dirt and rotting leaves."
Most children can make real world connections with worms, having discovered them in their own yards. Some may not, so I like to bring in some actual worms in a plastic tub of dirt when we read this story. This makes a very inexpensive item to observe in the science center for a day or two.
Wonderful Worms fits in nicely with a plant unit or Earth Day lesson. We also talk about words that start with "w" in the book: worms, wonderful, and wiggly.
