The Street Beneath My Feet

Publisher: Words & Pictures Press

Review

What’s under our feet as we go about our day? We might think about the roots of the trees we pass by, or the worms in the soil, but what about all the other stuff? Water pipes, electrical cables, storm drains and sewers and underground trains are all represented in this unusual fold-out concertina book, as well as the remains of older civilisations, caves, underground rivers and even the centre of the earth itself.

Young readers will enjoy taking an underground journey through the layers of the earth in this attractively illustrated, artistic piece of narrative non-fiction. Each spread has a wealth of detail to explore without being too detailed, and you can dip into individual sections as well as laying the whole thing out on the floor as a map of the layers of the earth.
