Up in the Garden and Down in the Dirt by Kate Messner


In stock (can be backordered)

Up in the garden, the world is full of green—leaves and sprouts, growing vegetables, ripening fruit. But down in the dirt there is a busy world of earthworms digging, snakes hunting, skunks burrowing, and all the other animals that make a garden their home. In this exuberant and lyrical book, discover the wonders that lie hidden between stalks, under the shade of leaves… and down in the dirt.

This sweet exploration of the hidden world and many lives of a garden through the course of a year “could not be more lovely,” according to the Washington Post.
