Sand Swimmers: The Secret Life of Australia's Desert Wilderness - Narelle Oliver

In the Australian desert, life can appear to be an impossibility. It certainly seemed that way to many early explorers, such as Charles Sturt. However, there is life beneath the ground, as Narelle Oliver shows in this delightful new nonfiction picture book. Follow the early, fruitless explorations of Sturt, and then see what he was missing: the multitude of Sand Swimmers (Candlewick $16.99) that make up the ecosystem of this seemingly lifeless place. Oliver’s illustrations capture the barrenness of the landscape, and it’s easy to imagine how explorers could have missed the creatures living beneath its surface. Ages 7-10. Courtney Burtraw
