“With its lyrical rhyming text and gorgeous collage illustrations, Birds in My Backyard is a joy to read aloud. Donovan introduces over twenty birds in her book that will be sure to excite budding birdwatchers and naturalists to get outside and discover what winged friends are in their own backyards.”

Birds in My Backyard

Birds in My Backyard is a whimsical introduction to the chattering, swooping, squawking creatures that children see every day. The book features colorful collage and playful rhyme. Robins “go fishing for worms in the grass.” Hawks “play with breezes.” Blue Jays “boss other birds.”

Birds at the Beach and Beyond

We’ve moved from the backyard to the beach and beyond! Birds at the Beach and Beyond is also a whimsical introduction to the incredible birds that children see at the beach, marsh, or pond. Each page presents a new bird in colorful collage with a fun rhyme: Pelican parades pass in the sea sky. Sanderlings play games with the waves. Opsreys go swoosh.
