Birds in my Backyard

Birds in My Backyard is a whimsical introduction to the chattering, swooping, squawking creatures that children see every day. The book features colorful collage and playful rhyme.

Robins “go fishing for worms in the grass.” Hawks “play with breezes.” Blue Jays “boss other birds.”

Birds in My Backyard begins with the birds’ Dawn Chorus and ends at dreamy dusk, so that little ones might “soar with the birds” in their dreams.

Illustrator Dee Paras created charming collages of hand-painted papers to bring each bird to life on the page. And for readers who want to learn more, the book features information about the Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania and the National Aviary in Pittsburgh.

Birds in My Backyard premiered at the Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania’s headquarters at Beechwood Farms Nature Reserve in Pittsburgh.
