Have you ever wondered what happens in the earth underneath us? James has, and he wants to be a soil scientist. In Exploring Soils: A Hidden World Underground, James discovers that soil is not just dirt for digging in, it is an essential part of our world. He explores how plants and animals live in soil, how soils are formed, how they differ, and the ways that soil is essential in our lives.

Presenting a child-centered storyline written by Samantha Grover, a soil scientist and parent, and captivating illustrations from Camille Heisler, Exploring Soils will take you to an underground world filled with activity and discoveries.

This book aligns with Australian curriculum and Soil Science Australia’s "Soils in Schools" initiative and is supported by teacher resources, making it a perfect read for children 6-9 years old who are interested in the natural world around them, teachers and librarians, and parents and families.
