In My Backyard by children's author Margriet Ruurs“A single lyrical sentence describes the action, while clues in the illustration lead readers to surmise the season… Made entirely of sculpted paper and watercolors, Broda’s awe-inspiring scenes have a depth and realism that draw readers in. And as if that weren’t enough, readers get the extra treat of hidden details – he conceals a ladybug on each spread and a clue as to what animal will be featured on the next page. A necessary library purchase, this is also sure to find a home on budding artists’ and young naturalists’ bookshelves.” Starred Review -Kirkus Reviews
