Wildlife Garden Songs is a collection of 15 songs designed to help teach children about wildlife gardening. Within the framework of learning about this natural environment, the songs can also help to teach other concepts such as counting, positional words, bending knees while jumping and landing, as well as the theme of cooperation.
