This is a book about a Wuzzle worm named Johnny.  He climbs higher than all the other worms, to become a butterfly that nobody had ever seen before.
Johnny the Phoenix is a book that will inspire your child to be the best that they can be, by showing them the value of hard work and persistence.  There is also an alphabet activity at the end of the book, where kids take play-doh or crayons and make their worms look like the ones in the book.

Of course I am the author of the book and I think it is great.
This is about a little worm who follows his dream. He learns from his parents and then trusts what they have to tell him about
attaining his dream. Johnny then goes to work climbing over and over until the day comes for him to clime the tree and prove his worth. You and your child will love to act out his climb and transformation into a butterfly. This book teaches that dreams are achievable if you are willing to put in the work. It also teaches that parental advice is valuable. After the book, there is an activity for you and your child to do together, which will show them how letters get formed from small, medium, and long "strokes". I am certain that your child will enjoy this story, which parrots life.
