When you gaze out your windows, do you ever see a squirrel flicking its tail? How about a robin with a worm dangling from its beak? The animals in our neighborhoods may be obvious or rarely seen, but they live among us and contribute to each microhabitat. In My Backyard takes a closer look at six common creatures, exploring their life cycles and habits and noting their typical interactions with human neighbors. An activity at the end of each book encourages creative expression and critical thinking as the reader is invited to further explore a key idea presented in the text. A high-interest introduction to the life cycle of mice, including how pinkies develop, their plant-based diet, threats from predators, and the woodsy habitats of these backyard animals.
