Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Outlining more than 40 projects, this book will help wildlife enthusiasts turn a backyard into a habitat capable of attracting a variety of birds, insects, reptiles, amphibians, and mammals. Johnson, a naturalist and writer, and McDiarmid (Making Plant Places) introduce readers to the basics of ecology and wildlife behavior and advocate using native plants and organic methods to create appealing and safe environments for wildlife. Their range of yard projects requires varying amounts of materials, skills, and time. Some (e.g., a hummingbird feeder, bee house, and toad home) could be completed by children, while others (e.g., a bog garden) could make great family activities; many projects list plants that provide food, nectar, and shelter. Sensitive to those with limited space, the authors also suggest small-scale ideas suitable for balconies and windowsills. Family friendly and well illustrated, this is a strong accompaniment to Josie Briggs's Creating Small Habitats for Wildlife in Your Garden. Recommended for most public libraries.-Bonnie Poquette, formerly with Shorewood P.L., WI Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
