Secret Lives of Soil Creatures

by Sara Swan Miller
 

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jamie Hain
Readers discover the diverse world of soil creatures in the pages of this book, as they learn about the important role that each plays in a healthy ecosystem. No two species are alike, and they range in size from microscopic to over a foot long. Creatures are broken down into categories based on their role in the environment and whether their diet is mainly plants, animals, or both. Part of the "Secret Lives" series, this book contains a quick reference index and a section of valuable resources where interested readers can find out more about the creatures that live in the earth's soil. Words that readers may be unfamiliar with are emboldened in the text and defined in a handy glossary at the back of the book. Colorful photos on each page bring the vibrant world of soil creatures to life in this highly informative book. It would be a great addition to a library serving students interested in the outdoors, bugs and some of the typically overlooked creatures on the planet. Teachers focusing on ecology may find this book very useful when discussing the role of decomposers in the ecosystem. Reviewer: Jamie Hain
