In my backyard there’s lots to see. I love the birds that visit me!
In this homage to Australian wildlife, Helen Milroy encourages you to look closely at the beautiful birds that may visit your own backyard. With laughing kookaburras, swooping magpies and dancing willy wagtails, the sights, sounds and movements that the birds make are clearly described, creating a true sensory experience for the reader. Milroy is a descendant of the Palyku people of the Pilbara region and her exquisitely detailed and colourful illustrations reflect her cultural heritage. Each bird’s personality and defining movements leap from the page to make Backyard Birds a thoroughly engaging book for younger readers.
