In My Backyard written by Margriet Ruurs, Paper Sculptures by Ron Broda

In My Backyard is a wonderful book. It is about the wildlife you will find in a backyard. The writing is simple and flows nicely, making it a good read aloud. The accompanying illustrations are beautiful! Ron Broda has done the scenes of the backyard in paper sculpture. Because they are sculptures the pictures are given a 3D quality that make them much more realistic. They are so detailed that it is hard to tell that they are made of paper. If you look closely every page has a ladybug somewhere. ~ Beag
