Illustrated by Kate Cosgrove
Dirt! It’s made of chipped rocks, decaying animals, fungi, and germs. It’s food for plants and home to animals of all kinds. Fifteen poems explore the underground lives of earthworms, spiders, ants, chipmunks, and more. Spectacular art is oriented for an extra-long view to better depict life down deep. This is David L. Harrison and Kate Cosgrove’s second nature book together and it has been vetted by experts.
