I've always loved Denise Fleming's books about nature for preschoolers. The pages are very engaging and have simple text that helps understand the content. In underGROUND, Fleming continues her winning style. Guess what? She just lives over in Toledo, OH--that's only about 2 hours away, so she is enjoying similar nature to what we find close. Find her at her website. She has some related activities for the book on the site. She also shows how she makes pulp paper. I've tried this before and it's a little harder than it looks! :-) I like how she uses stencils to get the pulp to go where she wants it.
I can see using this for International Mud Day, talking about gardening, or simply what is under the ground.
