A wonderful adventure where a young girl and her Mom convert a storage box to house their new pets, pets with a purpose. The box becomes a vermicomposting bin and the pets are redworms. Poetic, rhyming couplets provide a grand explanation of the process of vermicomposting in a manner that the youngest reader/listener will enjoy, which is supported by adorable illustrations. The book ends with How To and Resources sections to encourage further exploration of vermicomposting.
