Book Description"Finalist - 2006 "Foreword Magazine" BOTY Award - Juvenile Non-Fiction category Shortlisted for the Silver Birch Award Red Cedar Book Award nominee 2007-2008 Finalist - 2007 SB&F Prize for Excellence in Science Books - Hands-on Science/Activity Book category Animal Behavior Society's Outstanding Children's Book Award shortlist"What has no eyes, but can see? No ears, but can hear? No legs, but can still travel quite easily? Give up? The answer's an earthworm. You barely hear them, and rarely see them, but earthworms are among the most important creatures on the planet. They may seem like just more creepy crawlies, but without earthworms working hard on our dirt, we'd have a very difficult time growing our flowers, our trees, and even our food. Filled with interesting, easy-to-understand facts, "Lowdown on Earthworms" is the perfect introduction to these unsung heroes. From the myth that cutting a worm in half will create two worms, to their unique reproductive capabilities, all the need-to-know facts are here. Author Norma Dixon also provides her readers with several projects and activities to better acquaint us with earthworms and all the great work they do. Children can make a worm-watching terrarium, a worm composter, and even a worm-listening device of their own.First in a series of nature books that will include mollusks and flies.
