Goes through the various gardening vocal, but what it does really well is the illustrations. The pictures tell more than the words. If I were to use this in a high school, I would use it in a an art class and have them study the motion and the meaning of the pictures in relationship to what the goal of the book is.
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 winter’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.
