A nice story about an earthworm named Carl who spends his days digging, tunneling, and turning dirt into soil until one day when a mouse asks him "Why?" and Carl doesn't know why. He goes on a hunt for answers to the meaning of life, asking various animals in the forest. Through his journey, Carl realizes that all creatures, even the smallest ones like himself, have an important job and make a huge difference by just being themselves.

THIS BOOK IS FANTASTIC! The watercolors are so skillfully done and Carl's search for meaning is heartfelt. A wonderful addition to anyone teaching their children about decay or the life cycle of earthworms. I loved it!
