Q&A with the author
Q: How is the book organized?
A: There are four sections: forest, beach, fresh water, and backyards. I wrote each section in such a way as to help kids make sense of each habitat as they explore it, and to encourage them to take a second look at their surroundings. I emphasized the common things that people will see on any trip, trying to make them see things in a new way.
Q: Why look at nature in the backyard rather than somewhere wilder and more exciting?
A: Because if kids have a detailed knowledge of the landscape they live in, they are going to notice more and appreciate more about how different things are in a wilder setting.

That said, I was disappointed to find that it's missing black bears, cougars, bobcats, coyotes, rabbits, grey squirrels, hawks (but there are 3 species of owl)- all of which live in our neighborhood just 40 mins from Seattle. I was hoping they would be included so that my kids could learn about them too.
Maybe the next book? ;)
as I was reading I found myself wanting a little more information on certain subjects. I haven’t had an opportunity yet to share with kiddoes but I have this when the moment presents itself!
