SUMMARY OF THE MENTOR TEXT:

Worm loves Worm so they decide to get married. Their friend Cricket reminds them they need someone to marry them and offers to do it. Worm and Worm are anxious to get married, but their friends remind them of all the things a wedding needs: bridesmaids, a best man, rings, music, a cake, and the bride and groom. 


Worm and Worm are different than a traditional bride and groom so their friends must help them solve their problems with a traditional wedding: they wear their rings like necklaces and wiggle instead of dance. When it is time to choose the bride and groom, Worm and Worm decide they can both be the bride and the groom. Cricket explains that is not how it has always been done, but the Worms decide to change how things have always been done. The two are happy to finally get married!
