Get kids excited about the living world of soil with this new publication from the Soil Science Society of America.
Written for children aged 9-12, this 36-page, full-color book explores how soil is part of our life-the food we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink, the houses we live in, and more. Along the way, readers learn about different kinds of soil and meet the scientists who work with soil every day.
Give this book as a gift to a child you know, or buy in bulk for donation to local classrooms, libraries, and after-school programs. It's a wonderful way to share your passion for soils with the next generation of soil scientists.
