A quirky romp through the peat bogs of northern Minnesota for young readers.
The Big Bog in northwestern Minnesota holds many secrets, but no one has ever yet heard the biggest bog secret of all.
In Big Belching Bog, Phyllis Root lets us in on the secrets of the mysterious bog, describing such special inhabitants as plants that eat insects, bog lemmings, and frogs that stay frozen through the winter and thaw out in the spring. This book will stir the imagination of young readers and teach them about the landscape and environment of these fascinating places.
