Backyard Beasties

Backyard Beasties

Author: Helen Milroy

Publisher: Fremantle Press

Published: January 2022

Covering a combination of native species and domesticated animals, Backyard Beasties is a vibrant exploration of the wildlife on our doorstep, encouraging us to connect with our environment. Young readers are invited to observe and celebrate nature that can be found close to home – everything from croaking frogs to barking dogs.

The sturdy square shape of the book, its appealing cover and bold illustrations will captivate and delight readers, making it a fun and informative book.

This is the third title in the high-quality trilogy that started with Backyard Birds and Backyard Bugs. All three are published by Fremantle Press and there are comprehensive teaching notes on the website. Highly recommended.
