In My Backyard (Margriet Ruurs)
In My Backyard
From the singing of young wrens in spring to paper wasps building their nests in summer, from baby bats drinking mother’s milk in fall to baby opossums climbing into mother’s pouch in winter, backyard nature occurs across the seasons. Children look for the ladybug in each illustration, along with a hidden animal, which becomes featured on the next page. The book also includes helpful hints on how to turn your own backyard into an inviting place for animals to live. For ages 4 to 8.
