" Better choice for a library book to check out than read aloud for lengthiness, but how cool to have another great choice for poetry! Jane Yolen is always a solid bet! " said.

" Teacher may love this as a new Earth day share. Like many of the poems, but Three Things I know About The Roots of Trees may make a lovely teaching tool. Lots of poetic devices and vocabulary to love. " said.

"Twenty-one short poems of one or two stanzas provide insight and perhaps even “…knowledge / touched by grace” regarding what exists beneath our everyday world. Among the wide variety of “under” things included are cellars, underground plants and animals, subways, roots, fossils, magma, and caves. Two friends, a black girl and white boy, appear in most of the scenes, and the illustrations work well to clarify the diverse concepts. A page of notes at the end provides additional insights, some scientific and some personal, into the meanings of the poems. " said.

" This poetry book has both captivating verse and pictures that kept the whole family's attention. Jane Yolen presented ideas accessible to elementary aged children intrigued by the descriptions of what happens in various underground locations. " said.

" Another beautiful Jane Yolen book this time about all the things that can be found beneath our feet. Everything from basements to earthworms to subways to tectonic plates. With poetry and wonderful illustrations included this book is a great read to contemplate the world beneath us. " said.

" This book of poetry focuses on the happenings underground: insects, roots, seeds, subways, rivers, etc. I thought it was an interesting topic for a book of poetry and had beautiful illustrations to support the text. " said.

" Unique and powerfully told in rhyming verse, author Jane Yolen and illustrator, Joseé Masse show us the world beneath our feet, literally. You will never think of 'underground' the same way again.Published by WordSong.#PB #verse #nature #science " said.

" A collection of poetry about what goes on underground. From animal burrows to tree roots, from fossils to magma, Yolen covers a range of activity beneath our very feet. I would recommend this to teachers working on earth and rock units (fossils, volcanoes, earthquakes, caves) or nature (seeds, roots, worms, ants, moles). Very cool connections! Recommended for 2nd and 3rd grade. " said.
