Backyard nature is one of the first science experiences young children have. Getting them outside to play and interact with nature is an important step in nurturing a lifetime of enjoyment in the outdoors. Little Beth romps through her personal playground showing how she learns the proper names and characteristics of her bird friends. Her antics come alive in the delightful illustrations. In the future series she will introduce readers to her backyard mammals, face her fears of the dark, learn about habitat and discover the best place for her to live.
