We read The Street Beneath My Feet written by Charlotte Guillian and illustrated by Yuval Zommer. It is our class reader.
This book is about the different layers of the Earth and what is under our feet, including animals, pipes, drainage, rocks and minerals. We learnt about precious stones, diamonds and gold and how they were made, different types of rock and fossils and the bones of animals found in the soil. Firas’ favourite fact was how hot the inner core of the Earth was. Krista’s favourite page was the part were the animals lived because she liked the detail. Daisy G’s favourite page was the one about the stones and diamonds because she liked how colourful it was.
The book made us feel excited because we wanted to know what was underground. Andrew said, he’d never seen a book like this before as the pages are folded and they are so long… longer than the table! We all decided we would give this book 5 out of 5 stars because it was interesting and had a lot of facts. We would definitely recommend this book for everyone to read.
