Be alert, because when you step into this spooky, twilight zone, anything can happen. Suddenly, a bat squeaks overhead while a slithery something—a salamander?—slides around your foot into a dark crack. Move your flashlight and cave crickets wiggle their antennas as a frog croaks somewhere nearby. Look up and heart-shaped face of a barn owl may fix you with an icy stare. One small square at a time, you feel the mushiness of the damp earth and experience a world of natural wonders where shy inhabitants wait in shadows for you to discover them.

Cave is just one of the exciting, vibrantly illustrated volumes in the criticially acclaimed One Small Square series of science and nature books for children ages 6 to 9.

  • Stunning, full-color illustrations of the habitat and its creatures
  • Motivating experiments and activities, along with clear, diagrammed instructions and safety tips
