"Every child should have mud pies, grasshoppers, waterbugs, tadpoles, frogs & turtles, elderberries, wild strawberries, acorns, hickory nuts, trees to climb, animals to pet, hayfields, pine cones, rocks to roll, sand, snakes, huckleberries and hornets – and any child who has been deprived of these
has been deprived of the best part of his education."
-Luther Burbank 1849 - 1926

Explore Tami's World in 'Backyard Nature Safari' DVD
"The kids were mesmerized. What amazed me is that it spoke meaningfully to kids from grades 1 through 6 and they retained the information, enjoyed the worksheet and were clearly having fun. It changed their feelings about squirrels and made them recognize that squirrels are interesting and important critters."
Ina Hillebrandt, PawPrints Literacy Foundation
"It stirred their interest and immediately made them want to learn more about the creatures around them. They devoured the worksheets on the website."
Michael Lemke, Homeschooling parent
The Backyard Nature Center
This new star of neighborhood antics is building quite a reputation -- she's cute, she's curious, she's brave...and quite the acrobat!
announces Tami Douglas' arrival
on the little screen
in your living room!
"Backyard Nature Safari" is a delightful adventure that introduces children to exploring their backyard wildlife and habitat. Gentle. Real life. Common treasures found in urban neighborhoods and parks.
Children and even their parents and grandparents will enjoy this bouncy safari through the bushes and leaves to find little critters and beautiful flowers and everyday magic.
The the little ones outdoors. Encourage them to crawl, and poke and prod and climb trees. They will learn valuable life skills, will wear off pounds and pounds, and be ready for a nap when they're done!
"This DVD has three shorts that provide different viewpoints of backyard exploration. Kids will learn valuable observation skills, as well as how animals behave when we're not looking!" says Carolyn Allen, the producer and director. "I have as much fun seeing kids enjoy this story as I had in creating it!"
Carolyn Allen shot and produced this footage in her own neighborhood and has added several worksheets for kids of all ages to explore the world of squirrels. Visit the website Learning Center, www.BackyardNature.com, to learn more about the squirrel family and specific squirrel behaviors.
"This DVD makes a great gift -- for birthday parties, for holidays, and for special adventures with a favorite grandparent," says Carolyn. "Be the first on your block to offer backyard nature tours to your friends and family! This DVD will get you started."
