Magabala Books 2016. ISBN 9781925360448
(Ages: 2-4) Recommended. Written by Australian author and illustrator, Bronwyn Houston, Animals in my garden is a vibrant and richly textured counting book that will engage toddlers to learn about the unique Australian animals found outside through its enchanting and playful style.
Bronwyn's images are filled with bright colours, texture and movement which adorns single pages in this sturdy and small board book. Images featured in Animals in my garden are highly detailed and hidden amongst leaves and trees which encourages children to look closely to find and count the animals, just like they would if they were playing outside.
Overall, Animals in my garden supports early numeracy development whilst introducing native Australian animals to toddlers.
