About the Book

A story of acceptance and friendship that tells of a big, awkward worm who can’t dig holes like the other little worms—who can’t do anything the others can do—and he doesn’t even have a name! But see what this sad, lonely worm discovers about friendship, friends, and even the not-so-friendly!

(Note: This story is a good fit for any Character Education curriculum, grades pre-K through three. Character Education is mandated in certain states.)

[Just Plain Worm] is charming and deeply spiritual and healing to that fear in all of us that we are not loved or special or even “okay.” It is also light-hearted and never preachy.

About the Author
M.M.E. Grealish

Apart from early crayon murals on the family walls and a bit of dabbling here and there over the years, M.M.E. Grealish didn’t really apply herself to drawing until illustrating her children’s books.

Writing, on the other hand, has been a more integral part of her different careers, the latest being freelance editor in the textbook industry. So much of what Ms. Grealish does has children at its center, including a radio show she hosted some years back, Then and Again, aimed at bringing generations closer together through the music and movies the ‘30s, ‘40s, and ‘50s.

Because of her father’s work, M.M.E. Grealish spent many of her growing-up years overseas: Chile, France, and fifteen years in England. Ms. Grealish now resides in the Charleston area of South Carolina.
