Witness the stories the ground has to tell in this beautifully illustrated nature book, perfect for 7-9 year olds. Soil is essential to life on Earth, and this book explains exactly how ...it impacts different areas of our lives - from the link between soil and climate change, to growing the food that we eat, and why we need to protect the ground. Under Your Feet delves beneath the Earth's surface and explores the diverse wonders hidden there. Encounter creatures that could be from another planet, including the star-faced mole and worms as big as snakes, and marvel at the mind-boggling size of the humongous fungus - the biggest organism in the world. Discover all the stuff you never knew about the world under your feet, from exactly what soil is made of to the creepy crawly creatures who make it their home. Learn how one handful of ordinary soil contains more organisms than there are people on Earth, and carry out experiments using dirt from your back garden. Under Your Feet offers you the opportunity to expand your knowledge of the natural world and soil-dwelling creatures big and small. Bursting with colourful illustrations and photography, this is the perfect book for budding young plant experts, animal fanatics, and geologists, and anyone who is curious about the ground we walk on.

              Gardens are proven to enhance your wellbeing, but why? Covering the design, the plants, and the physical act of gardening, this book uniquely explains the evidence behind why green spaces are good for you. It then shows you how you can use that knowledge to optimize your own outd...oor space for wellbeing. The way you design your garden, and the plants you choose, can impact on your psyche: on your wellbeing and stress levels; on your immune and cardiovascular systems; and on your engagement with nature at a primal level. It can help neutralize pollution from noise, pollens, exhaust fumes and gases, and help reduce your household energy and water consumption. Research in recent years has shown tangible benefits for our wellbeing from the act of gardening and from contact with green spaces: it can counteract obesity, nature deficit disorder, and depression. Understand the science and how you can use it, and your garden will truly become your paradise.
