Have fun on this poetic tour through the leaf litter layer and dig into the fascinating facts about the tiny critters who live there. 

Nineteen poems in a variety of verse forms with accompanying science notes take readers on a decomposer safari through the "brown food web," from bacteria through tardigrades and on to rove beetle predators with other busy recyclers in-between. Glossary, hands-on investigations, and resources are included in the back matter.

There will be a Leaf Litter sing along , temporary tattoos and other fun, and Leslie Bulion will be bringing compost soil so that we can see Leaf Litter Critters up close and personal! 

Leslie Bulion is the author of several children’s books, including Uncharted Waters, The Trouble With Rules, and Fatuma’s New Cloth, winner of the African Studies Association’s 2002 Children’s Africana Books.
