In this eloquent plea for compassion and respect for all species, journalist and gardener Nancy Lawson describes why and how to welcome wildlife to our backyards. Through engaging anecdotes and inspired advice, profiles of home gardeners throughout the country, and interviews with scientists and horticulturalists, Lawson applies the broader lessons of ecology to our own outdoor spaces. Detailed chapters address planting for wildlife by choosing native species; providing habitats that shelter baby animals, as well as birds, bees, and butterflies; creating safe zones in the garden; cohabiting with creatures often regarded as pests; letting nature be your garden designer; and encouraging natural processes and evolution in the garden. The Humane Gardener fills a unique niche in describing simple principles for both attracting wildlife and peacefully resolving conflicts with all the creatures that share our world.

Woodland creatures include a crafty fox and her cute cubs, a sweet hedgehog, and extras such as a toadstool and acorns to complete the woodland scene. Go on a felt safari to see lions with golden manes, zebras, and hippos that you can recreate in colorful fabric. From under the sea, there are whales, seahorses, and jellyfish, along with a set of fish and their fry, with sequins for scales. On the farm, cows, pigs, and ducks are joined by a chicken and chicks, while in the garden, there’s everything from insects to frogs and birds to be made. Pets are included—from rabbits to guinea pigs, plus a dog and puppies. There are projects for all skill levels, and each design has clear, illustrated step-by-step instructions. If you need to learn a stitch, there’s a helpful techniques section, and there are lots of tips and tricks to make your animal creations really look special. With Super-Cute Felt Animals, you’ll soon be able to make a wonderful menagerie, to keep for yourself, or to give as gifts to your friends.
