PRLog - Sep. 2, 2014 - WASHINGTON -- Eric the Earthworm is a children's book written and illustrated to demonstrate how little thoughts of wonder and amazement at the abilities of others can sometimes turn into feelings of envy. The book tells the story of a young earthworm named Eric who loves life in the park he lives in. He looks around and just beams at all the sights and sounds, but one day his joy turns to sadness when he begins to envy the abilities of others.

The story takes place in an active city park. When you meet Eric, he’s in his element. He’s in the center of the park, and the middle of all of the activity. He enjoys seeing people walking and jogging. He loves the horses, the birds, and seeing balloons sail through the sky.

Eric’s trouble starts after he begins to admire the abilities of his neighbors: the ant, the caterpillar and the green worm. The ant is strong, the caterpillar has lots of legs and is fast, and the green worm can hide in the leaves. Eric begins to feel sad without even realizing that what he is actually feeling is envious of the abilities of the others.

One usually doesn’t plan to be envious. Envy can suddenly raise its ugly head and often catch you by surprise. It can even negatively affect self-esteem. With a little help from his mother, Eric realizes that he has no need to envy anyone, and returns to being his happy self again.

Video and Web producer, Emmy winner and author; Cheryl Bond-Nelms wrote Eric the Earthworm to help young people deal with issues that can arise when confronting feelings of envy.
