UNDERGROUND by Denise Fleming. New York: Simon Schuster, 2012. 34p.
ISBN: 978-1-4424-5882-6  Gr. PreK-1  E PIC
Fleming created a graphic story about what happens underground. 
Young readers will learn animals which burrow underground including  
ants, chipmunks, moles frogs, worms etc.  Illustrations made by pulp 
painting, a paper-making technique, show how vegetables have both 
leaves you can see above ground while the vegetable grows below ground. 
Illustrations have muted colors for the most part. Final pages include 
creature identification helping children learn many different animals.  
It would be fun to take this story outside to work on identification.
