This is a very cute, rhyming story about what lives under logs or trees that have fallen down. The story begins with telling how big trees fall down and become logs with various creatures living in it. This is a wonderful learning and teaching experience for ages 4 to 10.


“I loved this book. I never knew so many things could live in a log. We have a huge one in my Papa’s backyard. I liked the pictures because they were very bright. I learned about different creatures and how they made their homes and what they ate. The one I found most interesting was the red mite. I didn’t even know what they were. After I read this story, I got my Papa’s binoculars and a magnifying class and went with him to see what we could find.”


“Around One Log” was so cute and educational. Zoey must have read it four or five times that first day. She took her notebook so she could record what she saw when searching the backyard log. It is an easy book to read and rhymes so the information is easier to retain.
