My First Real Job - Dew Worms

by Daniel E. Brown


Book Details

A First Job Leads to an Unexpected Discovery . . .

Nine-year-old Dan knows how to hustle, and when he sees his friend Greg with a nifty new bike, he wants to know how he can earn enough money to get one, too. Greg tells him all about picking up night crawlers—or dew worms—for a local bait supplier. At the second house from the corner, the neighborhood kids drop off coffee cans full of worms and pick up their pay envelopes. It’s dirty, messy, fun work, but one day Dan finds something he doesn’t expect. Second House from the Corner is a delightful tale of childhood adventure and a tribute to the value of hard work!
