Staff Pick

Who better than a groundhog to narrate Older Than Dirt: A Wild but True History of Earth (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, $18.99)? Not only does she know her dirt, but she also impresses her curious earthworm neighbor with her extensive knowledge of all aspects of geology. She recounts the how Earth was created in the Big Bang and how it has evolved over billions of years, right up through the climate change crisis we face today. Don Brown and Dr. Mike Perfit’s graphic novel presents eons of information in an entertaining and digestible format, with discussions of natural disasters from the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 CE to the 2004 tsunami that will both keep readers hooked and highlight how important this science lesson really is. Ages 7-10.
