Rated 0

Picture books

Imagine designing and building your very own backyard! Written by real-life engineer and CBCA-Notable author Mike Lucas, and illustrated by NZ favourite, Daron Parton.

Slip on your overalls, pop on your hardhat and jump in the digger - let's build a backyard!

We dig, we build, we plant, we sow.
We make a place to play and grow.
You and me - one, two, three ... GO!
Work! Work! Work!

A fun look at creating a backyard from scratch; from moving the mud and building the fence through to planting a vegie garden and adding in the compost (Poo! Poo! Poo!). Let's Build a Backyard is a high-energy, brightly illustrated picture book by a real-life engineer, and is the perfect companion to Let's Build a House.
