Format: Paperback
Under One Rock is a cumulative informational book that details a small child's findings when he lifts a rock.

This is an interesting book with a great deal of information included on the insects and worms found in nature. The cumulative nature of the text draws children into the story and allows predictability for early readers. The author's notes, glossary, and publisher information in the back of the book provides a fantastic classroom or parent resource.

As a nature lover and a mother who believes children today are suffering from nature deficit disorder, I am so thankful to have added this book to my library. It is a wonderful example of the science that occurs around us at any given moment. If we just slow down for a moment, we may witness some of the wonders of the natural world.

As a classroom extension, consider placing a large rock on the playground then observing the changes under the rock for several months. The grass will die, insects may inhabit the sheltered space, earthworms may be observed, etc. In addition, a nature walk may reveal many other small ecosystems in unexpected locations. If you are looking for a naturalist title or a book to inspire the exploration of nature, this is a good start!

I did enjoy this book but feel that it was a bit low for my 1st graders. My 3 year old loved it. It's worth it if you just want to intro. earth/bugs/etc. and then carry on with other books.

A cute book about what is under the rock. I was hoping to find more things under this rock. It has a lot of words that don't keep my toddler interested. He loves bugs and looking under rocks himself. Nice illustrations.
