In The Garden – Explore And Discover The New Zealand Backyard

In the Garden introduces young children to common creatures they can find in a New Zealand garden. It is the one of the only guides available for young children and families that shows creatures in their natural habitats. The book describes their relationship with other living things, and includes many interesting and intriguing facts.

In the Garden is produced in the same format as Gillian Candler and Ned Barraud’s best-selling book At the Beach, which won the Elsie Locke Medal for non-fiction in the 2013 Lianza Children’s Book Awards and was a finalist in the non-fiction section of the 2013 New Zealand Post Children’s Book Awards.

This book encourages children aged 4–8 to explore their gardens and discover the plants and animals that live there, with sections on bees, wasps and flies; butterflies and moths; snails and spiders; lizards, mammals and birds.

Aimed at children from pre-schoolers and up, the book will also appeal to anyone who is curious about the wild side of New Zealand gardens.

There’s a rustling and a buzzing in the garden.

Something chirps and sings. The garden is alive with animals and plants. For the creatures that live here, the garden is a wild place. Insects, spiders, lizards and other animals need clever ways to survive.
