I ordered this to share with my grandchildren, who love the outdoors. I've decided it would be more appropriate in the spring when the earth is waking up so will save it for Easter. I love the handmade paper collage artwork but was a little disappointed in the underground itself. The paper is darker and there isn't enough contrast so children will have to look closer to appreciate the details. The text is enjoyable and easy to read. I compared it to another picture book Deep Down Underground which has a lighter touch in its illustrations.
