It begins by piquing a child's interest in what is going on underground all the time. The images do open a child's imagination as to what goes on beneath the surface of the ground.
Vocabulary children will learn include:
While done tastefully, the page that focuses on the reproduction cycle of a worm may be a bit too much for the 3 to 6 year old range (and I realize that this book is geared more for ages 5 to 9) so there is some overlap and a challenge in providing enough details for an older child's understanding.
Page 22 states:
"In spring, before the weather warms, worms wiggle to the surface to mate. Worms are different from most other animals. Each worm is both male and female. but each one still needs a mate. After mating each worm crawls back into its burrow."
The following pages continue with a detailed and very informative description of the cocoon process and the development of the wormlets.
For budding scientists there are a few "experiment" ideas in the rear of the book.
