When you walk down the street, what do you see?

You don’t have to go to the countryside to observe nature. Small animals, birds, and bugs are everywhere in cities as well. In these two photographic board books, toddlers are encouraged to look closely at their urban environment to find and observe the wildlife around them.

From ladybugs and worms to squirrels and pigeons, young children are shown watching or listening to various creatures. Minimal text and brightly colored photos make these books ideal for toddlers who are just discovering the world outside.
