Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"The Caldecott Medal-winning artist applies her signature artwork to a tour of the garden from A for 'Arbor,' where a mother reads to her child, to Z for a giant 'Zucchini!' harvest. Ages 4-8." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

With her signature woodblock prints, the Caldecott medalist Mary Azarian invites readers into her own garden to discover its simple joys. Revealing the variety of life underground, the bright comfort of a greenhouse on a winterand#8217;s day, or the anticipation of starting seeds indoors in early spring, this striking alphabet book reminds us that gardens are perhaps our best way to live closer to the land and to the rhythm of the seasons.

About the Author

Caldecott Medalist Mary Azarian is a consummate gardener and a skilled and original woodblock artist. Many of her prints are heavily influenced by her love of gardening, and her turn-of-the-century farmhouse is surrounded by gardens that reveal an artist's vision. Mary Azarian received the 1999 Caldecott Medal for SNOWFLAKE BENTLEY, written by Jacqueline Briggs Martin. She lives, skis, and gardens in Vermont.
