“The nation that destroys its soil, destroys itself.” - Franklin Delano Roosevelt
The Street Beneath My Feet is a fascinating book about the layers beneath the surface of the earth, complete with brilliant illustrations. This journey through the layers of the earth is breathtaking in its scope and simplicity, its speed and its content. Everything from sewer pipes to subway tunnels to electric conduits to fossils and roots and beyond is covered, right down to the core of the planet and back out the other side. The illustrations are visually stunning. With one long double-sided page that concertinas out, this is a fantastic way of helping children to understand the scale and depth of the Earth. By reading it, we will have an inventive and exciting overview of a world that we do not often see -- the natural and manmade forms that exist beneath our feet, busy with lives and activity!
