From the often Caldecott-buzzed Deborah Freedman, a sweet and funny story about finding your place in the world. Carl is an earthworm. He spends his days happily tunneling in the soil until a field mouse asks him a simple question that stops him short- "Why?" Carl's quest takes him on an adventure to meet all the animals of the forest, each of whom seems to know exactly what they were put on this earth to do, unlike the curious Carl. But it's not until the world around him has changed that Carl begins to realize everyone, no matter how small, makes a big difference just by being themselves.… (mais)

This book is about Carl's purpose in life, but it also teaches how his purpose affects everyone and everything around him, that without him the circle of life is broken, and that we are all connected in life, that what we do affects everyone. ( )

This book is about a earth worm that decides he will stop doing his job of eating dirt. The book follows the effects of the worm not working anymore and how it affected other organisms. ( )

Carl and the Meaning of Life was very interesting and fun to read as the watercolor pictures were captivating and the text was positioned like an earthworm’s movements on certain pages. The question repeated multiple times in the story was “why do I do what I do?” The question is one that most people do not think of and Carl the earthworm was troubled by not knowing the answer. Over the course of the book, the setting changed from a flourishing land to one that was barren and empty. It never occurred to me why until Carl had an aha! moment and knew what to do. The book never explicitly says what Carl figured out or why he does what he does, but instead it is left up to the reader to figure it out the answer. Between the setting and the unsaid answer, the book was very enjoyable to read. ( )

I have a series of art programs based on different authors, We Explore Art, and after reading this book I decided that we absolutely need a new one on Deborah Freedman!

The endpapers are a swathe of green hues, which shift to the washed purples and whites of the title page, showing a small worm peering up at the sky. Soft, watery colors introduce the various creatures of his world until we meet Carl, an earthworm, digging deep in the earth. The words run up and down, just as Carl digs up and down in the dirt, day after day. Until one day a mouse asks a question. "Why?"

Carl sets out to find the answer, asking each creature why they do what they do along the way. Each animal has a reason for what they do; to support their family, to hunt for food, to plant trees... but none know why Carl does what he does. As Carl travels farther and farther, he hardly notices the changes in the earth around him as it grows dry and barren. The animals begin to leave and soon there is no one left to ask "why?" It's only then that Carl finds the answer to his question and returns to his purpose. His "why" is to support all the other animals, keeping the earth rich and fertile, allowing the seeds to grow, the animals to thrive, and each of them to fulfill their purpose.

A final author's note reflects on the importance of connections and asks readers how they help the earth that Carl and his friends live on and in.

Freedman's watercolors are soft and, well, watery. But they're still beautiful, catching the soft greens of the earth and the spreading dry browns after Carl sets out on his journey. Shades of color and tiny details, like leaves mixed into the soil, a tiny spider's web, and a collection of nuts, dot the pages, rewarding close readers with little surprises throughout the story.

Verdict: This reflective story will appeal to preschool and up; pair it with a storytime on worms, compost, or gardening and encourage them all to think of the little ways they can help the earth around them and to marvel at the many ways that the creatures on earth work together.

When a field mouse asks Carl the earthworm, "Why do you do that?" - that being tunneling through the dirt - Carl stops what he's doing and goes off to find out why he does what he does, by asking the other animals what they do and why. Meanwhile, the ground dries up. and the other animals leave. Then Carl realizes that making the soil fluffy is his work, and when he starts doing it again, the other animals return.

An author's note points out, "Everything is connected - including you!" The beautiful illustrations were made with watercolor, pencil, colored pencil, and Photoshop. ( )
