The Soil Neighborhood
by Dan Yunk and Steve Swaffer
Second in the series of Kansas Farm Bureau books is The Soil Neighborhood by Dan Yunk and my friend Steve Swaffer. Learning about
dirt soil isn't that much fun for most kids, so when a book tells the story of underground to kids in a fun way I tend to like it.
Once again Kailey is visiting Grandma and Grandpa. Kailey wishes dirt didn't exist, so she wouldn't have to take baths.
Grandma explains there is a whole neighborhood under a wheat field who work together to make soil a good place for plants to grow.
Rocky, Clay and Sandy work with earthworms and bacteria to make the soil a place that plants like for their roots to grow.
Soil is important for lots of things we use everyday especially food like I mentioned in the Soil-It's What's For Supper lesson.
