Review: This is a good example of informational, because it gives detail description about what animals and plant life could be in a person backyard. It describes were they live, how they move and what they eat. At the very end of the book there is a legend that describes each animal that the author has written about. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0887767753, Hardcover)

From the singing of little wrens in spring to paper wasps building their nests in summer; from baby bats drinking mother’s milk in fall to baby possums climbing into mother’s pouch in winter, In My Backyard celebrates nature and backyard animals through the seasons. Wildlife artist Ron Broda’s detailed paper-sculpture art beautifully complements Margriet Ruurs’ lyrical text, and young readers will discover a captivating variety of animals and insects.

Find the ladybug in each illustration, along with a hidden animal, which becomes featured on the next page. A detailed legend and helpful hints on how to turn your own backyard into an inviting place for animals to live make this book a must-have for wildlife and nature lovers alike.
