Overview

Elementary science teachers! Here is a low-cost field trip between covers from Tony Fredericks, a funny but very astute professor. Plus, the habitat lies under just about every rock. A whole community of insects and other creatures lives under rocks—worms and ants, spiders and slugs, crickets and beetles. Dr. Fredericks focuses on the whole community of neighbors where the ground beneath a big old rock is home to them all. Two pages of Field Notes and fun facts at the back of the book offer intriguing information on these creatures.

No child will be able to resist looking under a rock after reading Frederick's rhythmic, engaging story. . .

What's under a rock on a warm summers day? A little boy decides to find out and discovers a whole community of amazing creatures from eight-eyed spiders to "a sole millipede with a sensitive feel/Who slips through the dirt in search of a meal." Borrowing the poetic form of the nursery rhyme, "The House that Jack Built," the author gives a defining characteristic of each of eight creatures and tells how it relates to the next. Engaging illustrations add considerable charm to the text. Best of all is a section at the end called "Field Notes" where children will find brief but intelligent facts about the creatures featured in the poem. Should they want to follow up on Australia's nine-foot earthworms or South America's plate-sized, bird-catching spiders, there is even a list of references. 2001, Dawn Publications,
