A great book about diversity and love.

Worm Loves Worm is an extraordinary book, not just because it is well-written, the character illustrations perfectly support the text, and the message that love is what matters is reinforced. It is also exemplary because of how well it represents and explains to a young audience the idea of non-binary genders and/or sexual orientation (it depends on individual interpretation), and what a marriage (something steeped in traditions which reinforce the male-female dynamic) might look like. The text is fairly straightforward, being done in the simple question and answer format as more individuals arrive for the wedding with their own ideas of what must be done. All Worm and Worm want is to be married, but it becomes more complicated and the wedding gets delayed because they just don't fit the mould of "tradition". Happily, they find their own way; they don't have fingers, so they wear the rings around their necks; they also decide that they are each both bride and groom. The line that sticks most with us though is when minister Cricket says "Wait!...That isn't how it's always been done.", and the worms simply state, "Then we'll just change how it's done." At a time such as this, this is an incredibly meaningful message, and it is one that all children, and all adults, should hear! Another great touch is that the worms never state what gender they identify as or their sexual orientation, so readers can apply the label that they wish. Brilliant, encouraging, and charming!

What a delightfully cute book about diversity and acceptance. Two worms decide to get married, but need to decide who will be the bride and who will be the groom. So sweet.

A cute tale of love and acceptance, with a unique way of presenting diversity through 2 worms who are exactly alike!
