Leaf Litter Critters by Leslie Bulion is a fun and informative book. This is a great resource for upper elementary. It is a book about decomposers. It teaches that decomposers are the critters that live in leaf piles and other natural waste. They help turn a leaf pile into nutrients for the soil. This book has poems that has to do with bugs, worms, fungi, bacteria and others that live in our backyards.
The last 10 pages include a glossary, poetry notes, which tell about all the different kinds of poems that were used, instructions on doing your own field work to find and observe the life in a leaf litter sample and resources for further reading.
