Backyards don’t just build themselves you know. There’s plenty of work that needs to be done so pop on your overalls, grab your gloves, don’t forget that hard hat, start the digger and let’s build a backyard…
Written by real-life engineer and CBCA notable author, Mike Lucas, Let’s Build a Backyard is the companion read to Let’s Build a House. It is a fun-filled look at everything it takes to build a backyard from spreading the soil to building fences, caring for trees to creating homes for animals, laying turf to Installing sprinklers, sowing seeds to fitting a pond.
Told in rhyming prose and with bright illustrations, the simple narrative follows a young child and her father as they enjoy getting dirty and put in plenty of hard-work to turn their backyard from barren space to a wonderful place to relax and spend time in. Perfect for budding gardeners, this is a very enjoyable reading experience that celebrates the joy of being outdoors and with nature, and the pleasures of time spent with family.
