Baby dogs are puppies and they belong to a litter, but what is a baby skunk called and what is the name of its family group? This clever, rhythmic story tells us just that! Counting from one to 10, familiar backyard animals are introduced by baby and family group name. Each stanza also tells a bit more about each animal by providing clues as to what they eat, how they sound or where they live. The “For Creative Minds” section includes more animal fun facts, information on keeping a nature journal and how to watch for wildlife in your own backyard.
This individual eBook App will read-aloud in both English and Spanish with manual or auto page advance. Switch language any time and the page text changes and the reading restarts on the same page with your newly selected language.
In My Backyard is designed to be both a fun-to-read story and a launch pad for discussion and learning. It features a 6-page For Creative Minds educational section in the back.
