This great big world of ours has got a lot of layers. Author/illustrator Sue Redding explores life just below the surface in her rhyming picture book, Up Above & Down Below.
Readers get a peek at the rarely-seen realms of the underground juxtaposed right alongside their top-dwelling counterparts. And the differences are striking.
We delve beneath stages, check out who’s napping in cellars, poke at the critters within insect tunnels and rabbet warrens, and dive deep into frozen waters to see what’s bubbling below. Often, those of us up here have no idea about those unseen guys down there.
“As furry and feathered friends play up in the leaves,
Creepy crawlies rule the ground underneath the trees.”
Great eye opener!
