What if you could photograph
a large wild animal up close...
...and a children’s storybook
unfolded right before your eyes?
As a published photographer, Roxanne Lutgen seized the opportunity to bring the antics of My Backyard Buddies to the minds of young readers. Using an interactive and easy-to-read style, the young reader can study Knobby the Deer at close range as he grows from a curious fawn into an adolescent buck.
With vivid, colorful photographs, this story will captivate toddlers to beginning readers by drawing parallels between animal and human childhood, and by illustrating Knobby’s survival through all four seasons.
Roxanne is a CPA and a freelance photographer, selling greeting cards and photographic prints.
