First Step Nonfiction — Backyard Critters

Engage young readers with basic yet astounding scientific facts about the tiny creatures that live in backyards and parks across the country. Caption call-outs highlight key visual details in the books’ eye-catching images, and informative chapter headings assist emergent readers in locating and identifying main ideas. An educational photo diagram at the end of each book plays up the “yuck!” factor of the insects, in addition to introducing important life science details about each critter.
