In My Own Backyard

An intriguing way to convey the awesome scope of history, this story follows a young boy as he imagines the parade of people and animals that once occupied the land in his backyard. The background of each illustration shows the same land form changing over time. The foreground shows settlers, Native Americans, ancient mammals, dinosaurs, an inland sea, and eventually “…a world so strange I could hardly believe my eyes. There was a beach with hissing sulphur springs, and the only life was in the form of a strange, dome-shaped algae.”

The continuity of the land and our connections to it are made plain; children will surely see fossils and artifacts with new eyes. Includes geologic time scale keyed to time points from the story. Paperback, 32 pages. Ages 6+.
