Summary

This award-winning, double-sided foldout book takes you on a fascinating journey down through the layers of the Earth, all the way to the planet's core and out the other side.



When you're out walking around, whether on the city streets or a country trail, there's always so much to see and hear. But do you ever stop and look down? Have you ever wondered what's going on deep in the ground under your feet?



There are so many amazing sights to see! One side of the foldout shows the ground beneath the city , while the reverse side shows the ground beneath the countryside . The underground scenes include tunnels and pipes, creatures' burrows, layers of rock, and the planet's molten core, each running seamlessly into the next.



Mixing urban and rural settings, covering subjects such as geology , archaeology , and natural history , The Street Beneath My Feet offers children the opportunity to explore their world through a detailed learning experience. And its foldout, laperello (or concertina) style, which extends to eight feet in length , is ideal for spreading out on the floor to pore over for hours .



Explore even more of the world with The Skies Above My Eyes (August 2018) and The World Around Me (October 2020), companion books from the Look Closer series .

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "A foldout, concertina format creates a visceral sense of a journey to the center of the Earth as readers travel past storm drains, buried artifacts, a subway, and many layers of rock on their way to the planet's inner core. Zommer's illustrations are a hive of subterranean activity, and Guillain's captionlike bursts enthuse about everything readers are seeing: "These small drips build up to make big stalactites," she writes as spikes pile up beside an underground river. "It can take hundreds of years!" On the way back up (on the reverse side of the pages), readers observe minerals, metamorphic rock, fossils, nesting badgers, a fox den, and finally topsoil as they approach the surface. Although the book spends most of its time in the Earth's crust, a closing page gives a better sense of just how much real estate the mantle and core take up. Ages 5-8. (Mar.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
