Lionni, Leo Inch by Inch 30 pgs. Alfred A. Knopf, 2010 PICTURE BOOK. $16.99. This is a reprint of the originally published 1960 story of a clever little inchworm. Before a robin decides to gobble him up, this tricky little inchworm uses his measuring skills to get himself out of sticky situations. But what can he do when the nightingale demands the inchworm to measure his song? Can our little inchworm find a way out of this situation or will he become the nightingale's dinner? Kids can probably predict what he will do! This is a quick and easy story to read to children. The illustrations are simple and they remind me of those by Eric Carle. Though this is an oldie, it is still a goodie! EL-ESSENTIAL. Whitney, Library-Teacher.
