How Things Work: In the Yard Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Award-winning, best-selling author and illustrator Lisa Campbell Ernst’s newest book celebrates young children’s inquisitiveness about the world around them—and, specifically, the things found in any yard.

 

In detailed, but easy-to-understand, language, Ernst describes the inner workings of acorns, bubbles, puddles, ants, wagons, clouds, and birds. Her meticulous and cleverly labeled drawings inventively illustrate the functioning of everyday objects.

Review:

"Graph paper — style backgrounds emphasize the schematic approach to nature that Campbell-Ernst uses to explain how different items and creatures — such as birds, butterflies, rocks, and dirt — that can be found in a typical backyard 'work.' There's a playful aesthetic in evidence, from the bright palette and friendly cut-paper artwork to the innate humor in some of the questions themselves ('How does a squirrel work?'). The various parts of the animals, plants, and objects are labeled, and brief facts about each subject dot the spreads ('Each kind of firefly has its own special pattern of flashing'). It's an elegantly designed primer to the natural world. Ages 4 — 8. (May)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
