Deep Into the Earth
Up Into Space
The die-cut holes in this series are cleverly positioned in the scenes to entice young readers to explore deep into the earth and up into space! Deep into the Earth: Our little hero Alex is playing in the garden with his adorable puppy and his magic spade. They find a hole and Alex can’t resist digging down a bit deeper to see what he can find. He uncovers an ear thworm burrow, an ant hole, a rabbit hole, underground castles and even dinosaur fossils. Up into the Space: Alex is curious about the sky as well. One night, he dreams a bean seed sprouts in the garden and that it grows taller and taller. Curiously, he climbs higher and higher and on the way up, meets sparrows, swallows, eagles and vultures, then through the clouds to the moon, the Milky Way and even encounters with aliens! What an adventure!
