In The Garden by Elizabeth Spurr and Illustrated by Manelle Oliphant: Book Review
It's Springtime and time for planting. A young boy is ready. He digs the dirt and plants the seeds. Then he waters his garden and does what any normal boy would do, he waits patiently until he gets sidetracked with other fun activities. The rain and sun work magic and help the seeds to grow. The excited boy discovers the joy of the garden he helped create.
The rhythm of the words combined with the delightful illustrations, give the young reader a glimpse of what it takes to grow a garden. The introduction to new words for simple gardening objects is sure to peak the interest of the young listener. Coupled with the visual aspects of the growing plants, In the Garden earns my recommended rating for the toddler lap reader.
