A Readers Favorite 5 Star Review from Mamta Madhavan, “A story with an interactive theme and educational concept, from Wiggle Worm's Shape Adventure will worm its way into the hearts of readers. The authors have written a beautiful story that will teach children not only about shapes but also about animals and counting. It is a book I would recommend for school libraries and personal collections as it can be used for reading sessions in classrooms and libraries. It also makes a good bedtime story book.” http://readersfavorite.com/book-review/29598

Author Bio:
Karen and Kathy are twins that have a passion for writing and cooking. They started writing in high school, and had a few things published in the school paper. When they got out of college and got a job in childcare they started writing again. They say that working with children keeps their minds full of ideas.

Keeping two careers afloat, however, does not mean that they do not take their writing seriously. Karen and Kathy says writing for children is full of fun, and keeps their imagination on go. When they are not writing they can be found in the kitchen testing out one of their recipes.

Karen and Kathy writes children's books, dabble in poetry, and writes cookbooks. They would love to write a novel one day. Our minds are always in overdrive, they have several projects going at one time.
Writing has its challenges, but Karen and Kathy take each challenge and work hard to make their dreams come true. They just set their minds to the task at hand and move forward.

Mini Interview

Why did you write this book? 
Because it was fun and we knew that children would love the animals and how they worked together.

Anything in particular you'd like to share about this book or its creation? 
This book is great to teach children how friends help one another. It also teaches math and basic shapes.

What can we expect to see from you in the future? 
Maybe a novel or two, a poetry book, and plenty more children's books.
