Publisher Comments:

Kids in the Wild Garden is a fun and accessible guide, inviting you to embark on an adventure with your children by simply stepping into and exploring the amazing life that lies hidden and flourishes within your own garden. Demonstrating that you do not have to look far to discover rich and unexpected wildlife, the books playful format and variety of experiments, projects and games, make this the perfect resource for adults and children of all ages.

Grab your trusty magnifying glass and find out interesting facts about all the creepy crawlies in your garden; For example did you know that some ants milk caterpillars? As well as learning things such as how to build a bird box, growing your own tadpole tank, creating your very own butterfly garden and creating a safe and warm habitat for your favorite winter bugs.

Kids in the Wild Garden also provides graspable introductions to biology, botany and ecology alongside all the facts you will need to care for the plants and animals in your very own garden. Instructions are easy to follow, step to step and are accompanied with child-friendly illustrations, bright and informative photographs, cool facts and tips, and cringe-worthy jokes!

This lively book will help both children and their parents, teachers and friends develop a long-term, enjoyable approach to their natural surroundings.
