Under Earth, Under Water by Aleksandra Mizielinska
This book’s a bit more of a miscellaneous subject matter, but boy, is it worth a read! Filled with absolutely gorgeous illustrations, one half of the book explores facts about things found under the earth (animals, edible roots, volcanoes, tunnels, mining drills, you name it) and the other half explores things found underwater. In the middle, readers learn about Earth’s layers down to the core.
If your kid is a fan of books like Weird But True, Believe It Or Not!, and Guinness World Records, taking a gander at this book is a must.
