Editorial Reviews

“There's A Barnyard in My Bedroom is an informative and entertaining environmental book for children. Written by David Suzuki the story has Jamie and Megan going on a hike, inside the house, with their father to learn about nature. They learn about things that came from animals and trees and even items that come from plants that lived millions of years ago.”“This delightful three-chapter book invites learning in the most natural way, unmarred by deadly good-for-you words that can so easily kill a child’s curiosity and enjoyment. David Suzuki is a scientist who clearly enjoys sharing his knowledge with children. A glossary… and a list of suggested activities will allow parents and teachers to make the most of these pages.”California Coast & Ocean“In There’s a Barnyard in My Bedroom, acclaimed geneticist and environmentalist David Suzuki takes children and their adult reading companions on a sweeping three-part ecological adventure in picture-book form. …Complete with activity suggestions and a glossary, this is a useful tool for environmental exploration with kids.”E Magazine
