Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carollyne Hutter
Plants, such as flowers, need the right kind of soil to be healthy. This book will get you digging in the ground. You will learn about soil and the best soil to use to grow a perfect garden. The book explores the different possible components of soil: pebbles, sand, silt, clay, humus, and others. The book contains the following useful sections: iScience Puzzle, looks at different types of soil; Discover Activity contains a hands-on activity to go outside, shovel up some soil, and study it; Science at Work looks at gardeners and how they grow plants; Connecting to History discusses earthworms and their important role in making healthy soil; Beyond the Puzzle puts together all the different activities dealing with soil and adds sunflowers to start a garden. Full of colorful photographs and helpful diagrams, the book will be a good addition to science units covering soil science. The "iScience Readers" series has three reading levels and this book is aimed at the "A" level. Reviewer: Carollyne Hutter
