*"Yolen pays tribute to the natural...and the man-made...as well as musing on lost cities, (and) pirate treasure...Blending creativity with scientific fact, (her) poems appeal to readers' imaginations and intellects alike." - Publishers Weekly, starred review
"...This collection illuminates the rich world of activity that goes on beneath our feet. The warm, naturalistic illustrations of underground scenes...often contain an element of charming whimsy...(and) nicely compliment the verses. Great for either a school or public library." – Booklist
"Through a variety of poetic forms, readers will...uncover buried history...The text embodies wonder and factual information...The detailed illustrations...tie the book together and provide little Easter eggs for kids to notice on every page. For scientists and daydreamers, this...volume of poetry approaches the world from a variety of thought-provoking perspectives in an attractive and engaging package." -School Library Journal
“This book of short, fun poems… could be used to teach both poetry and content. The illustrations are bright and feature two children discovering all the wonderful things that live underground.” -School Library Connection
“Twenty-one poems invite children to consider the worlds—natural and manmade— beneath their feet…. shifting perspectives add a sense of playfulness. Notes…for each poem round out this title, offering extra information, conversation starters, and possibly inspiration for children to write about their own subterranean interests." The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Imagine the Moon by Gerald Fierst
Sometimes we all, even the grownups, need a comforting bedtime book, and I read these two on successive evenings. I thoroughly enjoyed the blending of facts, poetic imagery, and beautiful illustrations. There is much of interest under the surface of our earth and in the movements and makeup of our moon. I learned many things my years of schooling hadn’t taught me, including the right-to-left waxing and waning of the moon and the important work of worms. Perhaps more lessons should be taught with such creativity, poetry, and pleasure. Serendipitous pairing of books, though I have a feeling the authors, if not already friends, would be . . .
You will never think of 'underground' the same way again.
