Nature Discovery In My Backyard is a book written for preschoolers and early readers about the environment that is all around them.
I am striving to be more green, eco-friendly, and environmentally aware in my home. I have often wondered how I can pass these values on to my young children without frightening them with scary tales of greenhouse gases.
Nature Discovery In My Backyard is the perfect book for sharing lofty ideas about ecology with little ones.
The book follows a little girl who is exploring her yard. She finds interesting things like a butterfly, a praying mantis, a bluebird, and soft, green grass.
Things that captivate your child when you are outside together make for great “mini nature lessons.”
The rhyming text and the beautiful illustrations never fail to hold my child’s attention.
I especially love reading nonfiction books to preschoolers, because their minds are so absorbent. I enjoy filling hungry minds with factual information.
Nature Discovery In My Backyard has a Tips For Nature Discovery section, to give parents and educators good ideas for exploring nature with children year-round.
The Nature Notes in the back of Nature Discovery In My Backyard give more detailed information about things like animals you might see, the life cycle of butterflies, and interesting facts about leaves. These Nature Notes are a big help for parents for answering questions from inquiring minds!
