This a great story book that illustrates and follows a little girl and her nana as they work in their large garden. The book is lyrical with the continues use with the words up and down. They explore and and discuss the creatures that wonder up and down the garden. In science I can use this to identify which type of creatures you can find in the ecosystem of the garden. Up in the Garden and Down in the Dirt, has been recognized on the Wisconsin State Reading Association Picture This! list and has been awarded the Giverny Award, which awards children's science pictures books.

I love these books so much (Over and Under the Snow, etc.) for their blend of story and natural science. Back matter includes information about each animal and insect featured in the text - useful for grown-up gardeners as well! ( )

A young girl is gardening with her Nana and discovers all of the fascinating things both in the garden and within the dirt. In the garden she and her Nana notice all of the different aspects of the environment; the ladybugs and the birds. In the dirt, the girl becomes aware of all that lives under there, such as earthworms and pill bugs. ( )
