I'm excited that Alyson Beecher, at Kid Lit Frenzy, is continuing her Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge for the fourth year in a row.
Thank you Margaret Simon for encouraging us to link up poetry this month using the hashtag #digipoetry. Also, thank you Leigh Anne Eck for creating a button for us to use.
I wrote reviews several weeks ago for Nonfiction Wednesday in haiku to stay in the spirit of National Poetry Month. This week, I write both my traditional review and then try out the haiku again.

I enjoyed this lovely book, written in the same vein as Over and Under the Snow, by Kate Messner, and wonderfully illustrated by Christopher Silas Neal. Kids will once again be captivated by what is busily thriving under the ground while we enjoy what's growing on top of it! I also love the relationship between grandmother and granddaughter, the legacy of respecting nature being passed on, and the circle of life shown by the passing of seasons.
Nana and I dream
and plan, a garden awaits
with a world below.
