Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Revealing the variety of life underground, the bright comfort of a greenhouse on a winter's day, or the anticipation of starting seeds indoors in early spring, this striking alphabet book celebrates the simple joys of gardening. Without neglecting the frustrations — the nibbling critters and the toil — or wry, humorous moments spent in the garden. Mary Azarian's spare words and lovely woodcuts capture the essence of turning a bare plot of ground into fragrant flowers and lush vegetables and trees. Her depictions of insects, manure, and compost piles are as delightful as her fountains, pumpkins, and Queen Anne's lace. Whether we are young or old, our gardens both exhaust and renew us. They are our source of magic and wonder and perhaps our best way to live closer to the land and to the rhythm of the seasons.

Synopsis:

This glorious alphabet features words associated with gardening--including bulbs, compost, digging, insects, and weeds--by the Caldecott Medalist Mary Azarian. An ALA Notable Children's Book and a "Booklist" Editor's Choice. Full color.

About the Author
