Children's Literature
What is dirt made of? Did you know that some of earth's deserts used to be thick forests and green fields? Dirt keeps us alive. This "Amazing Science" book will teach children all about dirt by using simple text, colorful illustrations, and hands-on experiments. All experiments shown will require the child to get dirt from his or her home or school yard. Children will learn the different types of dirt, the necessity of bugs and creatures in the dirt, and what to do to keep dirt healthy. The book contains an index, a glossary, fast facts about topsoil, experiments, a table of contents, and a list of various resources to find more information about dirt. The "Amazing Science" series is perfect for a classroom or a home. Children will learn by listening, watching, and completing hands-on projects. This is an excellent science series because it turns ordinary objects into scientific experiments. 2003, Picture Window Books,

I like this book a lot! It is colorful and attractive, yet contains great information. It goes a bit beyond the basic soil book for children in that it even has a few simple experiments to do. Every student should have one as it makes a "dull" subject come alive!
