Summary
Dirt. It's in the air, under your bed, on the street and between your toes. Most of the time, you're trying to get rid of it. Does showering make you feel squeaky clean? Sure you are --- for now. Read this book to find out why you just can't escape dirt --- and why it's important for more reasons than you think.



Earth, mud, grime, soil --- whatever you call it, dirt is everywhere, even where you don't expect it. Did you know that without dirt there would be no rain? Or beautiful sunsets?



The Dirt on Dirt covers not only what you think of as dirt, but also everything on and around the planet relating to dirt, from dirt homes big and small to secrets the dirt hides and much more. Youngsters will also find a bucketful of fun things to do with dirt, including how to build a bike racetrack, create fossil footprints and grow a garden playhouse.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "From dirty toes, fossils, earthworms, and animal burrows to buried treasure, cities, and dog bones, this engaging introduction to soil touches on a wide variety of topics clearly and concisely. Fun with Dirt experiments and activities demonstrate concepts and stimulate imagination. Illustrated with well-captioned photographs and cartoon-style sketches, the inviting format will attract browsers and students alike. Although the basic outline, much of the text, and the casual tone are the same as the author's Amazing Dirt Book  (1990), the colorful, new format makes this a worthy revision for libraries. A glossary and index are appended, but no sources are cited.--Perkins, Linda Copyright 2008 Booklist"
