Wiggle and Waggle
Caroline Arnold, Illustrated by Mary Peterson
Wiggle and Waggle, by Caroline Arnold and Mary Peterson, published by Charlesbridge Wiggle and Waggle were worms. They lived in a garden. All day long htey dug in the dirt. They slid between the beets. They looped aroudn the carrots. They pushed under the peas. Their tunnels gave the plants room to grow. "This is hard work," moaned Wiggle. "We will never be done." "Let's sing as we dig," said Waggle. Wiggle sang the high notes. Waggle sang the low notes. We wiggle and waggle, squiggle and squirm. Digging in dirt is the life of a worm. We dig and we sing all day long, Our wiggly, waggly, gardening song. They dug long tunnels, short tunnels, fat tunnels, and thin tunnels. Soon all the garden rows were done. "What a good song," said Wiggle. "It made our work go faster." "Let's sing it one more time," said Waggle. We wiggle and waggle, squiggle and squirm. Digging in the dirt is the life of a worm. We dig and we sing all day long, our wiggly, waggly, gardening song.
