In an adventure spanning several centuries young readers will be delighted with the little book as they learn about secret tunnels, hidden chambers and unexplored caves. From a destroyed and long-buried Aztec city to a Civil War cave that did much to aid the Confederacy readers will discover loads of trivia while being introduced to other relevant information that will leave them wanting more.
I would have LOVED Secrets Underground as a grade-school student. With all of the photos and the basic facts it would have kept me entertained for quite some time. It’s to the point but it isn’t cut-and-dried either so even the child who doesn’t love reading or history shouldn’t have any issues getting interested in this one. I mean, after all, it’s a subject one can hardly go wrong with!
