Diary of a Worm
This is a hilarious story of a worm who keeps a diary chronicling the differences of being a worm and being a human.

Ask your child to be creative and say the difference of being a cat, a bird, a fish, etc.  and a little boy or girl.

Read to your child as much as you can and when he learns how to read, encourage him to read on his own by giving him different kinds of books.
