Backyard Animals

Series of 8 titles

Bright red cardinals sing. Rabbits run. Squirrels gather nuts for winter. There are so many animals to view just outside your door! This new series helps children develop reading skills while learning about the animals around them. Tightly controlled vocabulary and repetitive text patterns work together with crisp and colorful photographs to create a reading experience that is fun, engaging, and supportive. Backyard Animals titles include tools for teachers and caregivers as well as introductory nonfiction features such as labels, a table of contents, words to know, and an index. A Let’s Review! feature proposes a photo and question to help readers review and expand learning on the topic.
