Underground

Life underground in the backyard is the focus of Fleming’s latest tribute to nature. As a young boy plants a tree he sees insects and rodents growing and moving. In vibrant textured paintings the world of seeds, roots and burrowing creatures springs to life. An observant reader will notice lost toy treasures found in the yard – a key, a coin, and a toy car. An illustrated “Creature Identification” index provides more information about each animal. A first-rate introduction to backyard treasures. Ages 4-6
