After we pulled some carrots out of the ground (garden), thus learning what a root is (and of course we ate those roots), peered into a few snake holes, and watched a frog jump into the pond, we read Underground together - over and over again. We kept learning about more and more things that are going on under our feet! There's a whole world of activity under the ground that we seldom pause to think about. It all comes alive with this book!

"Across pages that "hum with life and activity" (Horn Book), Denise Fleming's trademark nubbly textured, paper-pulp illustrations show how much is happening deep in the dirt of a typical suburban backyard. They reveal what insects and a whole host of other animals (such as rabbits, turtles, dogs, frogs, and woodchucks) are up to underground, and a key to all the animals included in the illustrations appears in the back of the book for kids who want to take a second (or third, or fourth) look. Paired with Kate Messner's similar book Over and Under the Snow, Underground is sure to get children thinking about what they don't usually see."
