Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
In the Garden introduces young children to common creatures they can find in a New Zealand garden. It is the only guide available for young children and families that shows creatures in their natural habitats. The book describes their relationship with other living things, and includes many interesting and intriguing facts. In the Garden is produced in the same format as Gillian Candler and Ned Barraud's best-selling book At the Beach, which is a finalist in the non-fiction section of the New Zealand Post Children's Book Awards. This book encourages children aged 4-8 to explore their gardens and discover the plants and animals that live there, with sections on bees, wasps and flies; butterflies and moths; snails and spiders; lizards, mammals and birds. Aimed at children from pre-schoolers and up, the book will also appeal to anyone who is curious about the wild side of New Zealand gardens.
