Under One Rock: Bugs, Slugs and Other Ughs
Although the average child may not want to touch a slimy earthworm or a crawly spider, many are curious about them and enjoy exploring their habitats. "Under One Rock -- Bugs, Slugs & Other Ughs" brings these habitats to life and could be considered one of the most perfect children's books. Poetry, detailed illustrations, and scientific fact come together in this instant classic. This book is written for children ages four to ten, but there is a good chance adults will learn a thing or two while reading it to their favorite youngsters. A section in the back of the book gives further information as well as some little-known "Fantastic-Facts" about each creature depicted in the story. Teachers or parents wanting to work a unit study with their children will find a wealth of resource ideas in the Field Notes guide at the end of the story. This book brings out the nature-lover in young and old alike. After reading this book, be prepared to make lots of stops on your next outing with your child to explore the environment under rocks. There is a whole, big, undiscovered world waiting to be found!
