Review:
Your Big Backyard brings the big world of nature and wildlife right to a child's backyard. With charming, full-color photos and imaginative, illustrated read-to-me stories, kids can see and experience outdoor life up close. Features ask questions and give answers to such common queries as "why do ducks have webbed feet?" or "where do fireflies go in winter?" The interactive text prompts discussion and active learning. Fun crafts and nature projects are geared for family fun. While the magazine is for ages three to seven, there is something of interest for all ages. An added bonus: there are links to websites within the articles for additional games, facts and activities.
