Robin Yardi



I’m a children’s book author, credentialed teacher, Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History Backyard Naturalist volunteer, and a mom. My kids are always muddy and we are usually out in the garden. I live in California with some chickens and a juvenile Sulcatta tortoise. Coyotes cruise by stealing chickens, hawks dip in the sky looking for lizards, the quiet deer nibble from fruit trees, and every year new quail chicks are born out in the scrub!

If you have any questions about books, school visits, or writing workshops just send a message to
