The Small Folkenchanting, holistic play, celebrating a naturally simplified childhood


Ananda Braxton-Smith

Backyard is a beautiful, lush, lyrical picture book about all of the life that children can find in a suburban backyard. 

White gums rustle, tawny frogmouths as still as wood, dragonflies swooping. Banjo frog calls the secret, watch the world carefully, your backyard is home to animals other than you!

A child stands on her back step at dusk and surveys her backyard. The backyard is teeming with life - birds, possums, native rats, bats, insects, and bugs.

A reminder to look closely at the world around you, reconnecting children with their very own natural environment in the most gentle and beautiful way.
