Dig in to this vibrant picture book that celebrates all the surprises found down in the dirt!
I dig in the dirt…and find a seed. Seed waits. I dig in the dirt…and find a spider. Spider runs.
Explore all of the creepy, crawly, dirty, muddy, green, and growing things that can be found outside in the garden. From pill bugs to worms to leafy green sprouts, young readers will love discovering the muddy garden habitat within the pages of this book—and outside in their own backyards!
This sweet and playful celebration of outdoor exploration is a perfect read aloud for story time.
Repetitive story, with very similar illustrations on each page. Not very engaging.
