This is a story about the life of an rainworm. It is suitable to be read to the youngest readers and to help them develop fine motor skills. It is also appropriate for emerging and novice readers.

This book has drawn inspiration from various Montessori teaching aids and charts designed to help develop fine motor skills and correct hand motions, enabling a child’s hand to stay relaxed when learning how to write. The book enables young children to acquaint themselves with letters of the alphabet and their shapes. All they need to do is use one or two fingers to gently trace the rainworms shaped like letters. When applying pressure, their surface will provide a certain level of resistance. Tracing should always start on the white dot.

Rainworms made it to Slovak National Design Award 2022 short list!
