about

In this exuberant and lyrical follow-up to the award-winningOver and Under the Snow, discover the wonders that lie hidden between stalks, under the shade of leaves . . . and down in the dirt.

Explore the secret world beneath the dirt that brings the world of nature to life: Up in the garden, the world is full of green—leaves and sprouts, growing vegetables, ripening fruit. But down in the dirt exists a busy world—earthworms dig, snakes hunt, skunks burrow—populated by all the animals that make a garden their home. WithUp in the Garden and Down in the Dirt, you can explore the hidden world and many lives of a garden through the course of a year!

• Follow a young girl and her grandmother as they journey through the year planning, planting, and harvesting their garden—and learn about what''s happening in the dirt to help make it all happen
• The stunning and bright illustrations feature dark earthy tones mixed with beautiful pops of color inspire a love of nature and encourage young minds to explore the world around them
• Includes a glossary of animals that live in, around, and under the garden to enrich the reading experience

Fans ofA Seed is Sleepy,Spring is Here, andA Nest is Noisy will also love the outstanding illustrations and educational storyline inUp in the Garden and Down in the Dirt.

"The harmonious relationships above and below ground, and those between the two, emphasize the complexities of the garden ecosystem, as well as the joys of sustained engagement with the land."
