“This book is kind of like the other one that we read, ‘On One Flower.’ In that book they all lived on a flower but in this book all of the things live under a rock! In the beginning of this book there is a letter written by a spider. There is a big rock in the grass and a boy lifts it up and sees what is under it. He found worms, a spider, beetles, and some other bugs too. There were a lot of things that lived underneath that rock. I liked the part in the back of the book where it tells more things about the bugs in the book. It said that some slugs have more than 20,000 teeth! That is a lot of teeth! I want to go outside and peek under some rocks to see if I can find some of these things.”
Like, “On One Flower,” “Under One Rock: Bugs, Slugs and other Ughs” is a great educational book for a young child. My son loved seeing what different types of creatures lived underneath the rock and learning more about them. He is definitely excited to do some exploring of his own and I am sure there will be no rock left unturned in our yard!
