A dramatic life-size photographic view of the natural world that combines the challenge of I Spy with the learning excitement of DK's Eyewitness.

Welcome to the fascinating world of your own backyard, where more than 125 bugs, worms, and small critters play out the drama of life in miniature. Seven life-size backyard environments, from the soil, to the vegetable garden, to the air above, are vividly depicted in enticingly lush photographic scenes. Scenes are followed by informational spreads which identify all animals and relate intriguing facts about survival in each environment. Includes natural science projects, essential safety information, and an inviting "visual index" for easy reference.
