Backyard Heroes

“Rufus Bellamy's nonfiction children's book, Backyard Heroes, presents an informative array of facts and observations about the natural world. This Crabtree publication effectively organizes its contents into clever categories, such as "Marvelous Munchers" and "Hungry Hunters," for efficient and effective child-friendly and fun-filled navigation...To effectively engage young readers in the reading experience, Backyard Heroes uses large, bubbly, and bolded typeface. The page layout is colorful and captivating. The layout is extremely engaging because it mixes text and imagery through an eye-catching page distribution...images are labeled with interesting facts that describe the natural behavior of the animal, insect, or plant represented...Backyard Heroes provides young children with a vast array of insight about their natural world. The birds, bunnies, and bees described in this lively illustrated text provide children with an informative go-to source to learn about their backyard adventures. This title speaks beyond the information provided by telling an illustrated story about everyday backyard heroes...I would highly recommend this book for school and public library collections. The information is easily accessible for young readers to decipher, the imagery is visually appealing, and the text inspires a pleasurable read. Teachers and librarians can use this book to enhance children's educational curriculum about the natural world. Children will eagerly learn about the marvelous rabbit muncher and the hungry spider hunter in Bellamy's fun-filled backyard reading adventure. Highly Recommended.” — CM Magazine, 03/11
