Have you ever wondered what happens in the earth underneath us? James has, and he wants to be a soil scientist. In Exploring Soils: A Hidden World Underground, James discovers that soil is not just dirt for digging in, but an essential part of our world. He explores how plants and animals live in soil, how soils are formed, how they differ, and the ways that soil is essential in our lives. Written by Samantha Grover, a soil scientist and parent, and with engaging illustrations from Camille Heisler, Exploring Soils will take you to an underground world filled with activity and discoveries.
