Informative. Fun to take students outside and explore in nature. Adaptable for all grades k-8. I would love to use this in a text-to-text connection with a science class. It would also be great to take the kids outside to observe the habitats. ( )

This is a beautifully illustrated book which encourages children to explore the amazing biodiversity found in one square foot area of a typical backyard. Part how-to book, part nature journal, part field guide, this book focuses on this small plot through many different lenses -- throughout the seasons, above and underground, during different times of the day and night -- and provides activities, instructions and supply lists to invite children to do the same. Illustrations and text are detailed and accurate, and are incorporated almost seamlessly together. A guide to the most common species is included in the back of the book, as well as a partially illustrated index. The rich illustrations, high quality activity suggestions, and concise descriptions allow children of varying reading levels, ages, and learning styles to benefit from this book. A great resource for inspiring, planning, and supporting outdoor experiences. Highly recommended for public and elementary school libraries. ( )
