This one took me by surprise Sweet and simple, it manages to discuss gender, sexuality and changing the way things have always been done in a way that felt entirely natural to me.

What took us so long A beautiful, wormy story
So much fun All the insects pile on to make sure that Worm and Worm have a wedding the way it s always been done But when the spider goes to put the veil on the bride, both Worm and Worm explain that they can be the bride Same with being the groom And as for their wedding, we ll just have to change how it s done, says Worm The wedding turned out just fine, because Worm loves Worm.Huzzah.
So I think there was a message here, and maybe it could be a kind of cute wedding present for a gay couple, but as a kids book, it s not working for me If it s ok for anyone to be the bride or the groom, why do they still have to follow all the other dumb traditions Why can t they have dirt to eat and cowboy hats to wear Ugh, I hate the wedding industry
Worm and worm just want to get married, because they love each other, but everyone keeps insisting on STUFF Cake, and veil, and dancing, and best beetle will they ever get to just be married and celebrate
I read this aloud and realized on the surface its about marriage, but it also reflects same sex marriage and could apply to either males or females It is age appropriate and good for younger kids.
This book is about two worms who love each other and want to get married Their friends want to help them out by being a part of the wedding party, like how it is usually done However, both worms realized that neither one of them can be the groom or bride and both of them can be either the groom or bride So, they were able to get married but not like how it is usually done It contains themes of love and acceptance It s a good way to introduce students to different family structures.
Worm Loves Worm tells the tale of two worms who fall in love and want to get married Simple It seems that it should be, until others add their own ideas of how to marry Cricket decides they need someone to marry them, and that it will be him Then Beetle insists there must be a Best Beetle , and the bees shout that they can be Best Bees Each time, the worms agree, and ask, Now, Can we be married You can imagine how this continues on These two worms are so agreeable they love each other and simply [...]
I thought this was going to be a book about how silly weddings are But it s actually a book about love without labels Worm and Worm are each both bride and groom The final illustration is just amazing and beautiful Dest loves Worm Loves Worm book.
I love this book.
I adore this book And my 5 year old loves it so much she has been sleeping with it.
thought it would be gayer
Two worms have fallen in love and decide to get married They get lots of advice from other insects Cricket offers to marry them Beetle insists on being the best beetle The Bees want to be the bride s bees Cricket tells them that they need rings for their fingers, but they don t have fingers so they wear the rings as belts There has to be a band and a dance even though the worms don t dance, they just wiggle Then come the clothes and the cake But which worm is the bride and which is the groom Aus [...]
Um, no At face value, this book is adorable Two worms decide to marry and are then bombarded with everything that goes along with wedding planning The worms decide to do things differently, which is fine HOWEVER, this book is being heralded as such a great statement about how the definition of marriage can be changed No, you don t need rings and attendants and dresses BUT, marriage, at it s heart, is still a law of God, between a man and a woman You can change the details, you can change the tra [...]
Worm loves worm.They decide to be married But one of them must be the groom and one must be the bride because that s the way it s always been done, right But maybe this time, they can just change how things have always been done.This picture book is delightful It s sparse and lovely and a wonderful tool to simply explain marriage equality A great addition to any collection.
Worm Loves Worm is a simple, cute book about two worms who want to get married Worm and Worm want to marry because they love each other, and when their friends try to make things complicated than they should be by introducing traditional wedding ideals like the need for a bride and a groom, they decide that the way things have always been done is not always the right way.
This one is super cute The worms are pulled into all the frippery of a wedding by their friends, when all they want is each other Asexual fun and some very interesting friends I don t trust that spider guy make this adorable.
This picture book is about gender non binary love, but it seemed to be about the deplorable commercialism of the wedding industry.Cute, but the whole time I was hoping something would cut the worms in half so they could be polyamorous.
Love is love is love whether you re a bride and groom, groom and groom, bride and bride, or all of the above.
Here is the perfect treat for Valentine s Day It is a delightful book about how love can arrive in all different forms and so can marriage
Love prevails Who says we have to do things the way others say or the way they ve always been done
This is amazing.
GAHHH LOVE 3
This book needs a parental warning on it.Being an amateur worm farmer, I noticed this book while at the library with my 5 yr old granddaughter I read it to her it starts out a cute story of 2 worms who want to get marriedBut wait Is this CHILD S book really an LGBTQEtc agenda message on gender fluidity Unbelievable Worried that I was seeing a conspiracy where none existed, I read some other GR comments, and while most loved it NONE had missed the point being that gender is an unimportant detail [...]
A story about two worms that wish to get married that gently introduces ideas of gender and sexuality in a way children can understand Simplistic illustrations also make it easy to interpret the story for children.
Very cute and a great way to answer questions about marriage ceremony that is unconventional.
