Description: The soil beneath our feet swarms with tiny creatures. This fascinating book introduces grade-school youngsters to this world, a bountiful sampling of which can be discovered in a bucketful of soil dug up from their own backyards. Science teacher Richard Rhine vividly describes the typical inhabitants of this vast subterranean world, explaining how they live, breed, and interact; their methods of locomotion, feeding and defense; and how they affect the soil in which they live. Here are intriguing accounts of industrious, tunnel-building earthworms; the threadlike, wriggily roundworms; snails and slugs (the "slime gliders"); spiders and other lurking hunters; the tiny eight-legged "flying tanks", more commonly known as beetles; the busy underground kingdoms of ants, and much more. Additional chapters offer suggestions for collecting specimens of these creatures and explain how they can be preserved and studied. The book is enhanced with over 70 illustrations and includes a selected bibliography.
