Reviews - What do our customers think?
Dirt is Great!  Aug 6, 2005
This book is a must for anyone that teaches soil. As a teacher in fourth grade I believe this book is an essential item for the classroom. It has wonderful images and gives setps to create your own soil experiment. This Book is Terrific!
All the Dirt  Aug 4, 2004
DIRT is a very accessible book. It starts simply and tries to make a connection with what readers already know about dirt. The author soon begins to call dirt "soil". It discusses soil's composition, formation, and use. It also covers the animals, insects, and organisms that live in soil. There is information about the layers of soil and conservation is mentioned briefly. There is a plant growing activity, but no resources for further study. The illustrations are colorful, clear, and kind of friendly. DIRT might be a good companion to the humorous "The Diary of a Worm". Karen Woodworth-Roman, Children's Science Book Review
Great nonfiction  Mar 7, 2004
This is a great piece of nonfiction for children. It is well illustrated and the text is easily understood. Children will have a great understanding of soil and its importance. I read this to my class and we are doing one of the experiments presented in the back of the book. I love books that provide extension activities for children. Highly recommended. Young children need more exposure to good nonfiction and this book fits the bill.
get to the nitty gritty.....  Jul 30, 2003
I bought this book Dirt and also Sand by the same publisher. I now wish I would have gotten both copies in hardback. I nearly never feel that way because of the price difference. We buy alot of books! This is one I can use now with my middle schoolers, use later and use with Grandchildren some day. The pictures are vibranant and well laid out. The information is pertenient, and well placed and it is FUN to read! Pre-school through early High School could appreciate this book, understand it, and find it useful. Anyone who needs to understand our soil would do well with both these books. They cover different material so neither would be a repeat. National Geographic, as always did a great job.

Excited Teacher in Nevada!
