“A Treasure in My Garden” and “Water, Weed and Wait” – Two Children’s Book Reviews

Hello – Yes! it’s Spring 2013 and it about time! I just can’t wait to get into the garden, well as a matter of fact I didn’t wait, I’ve already planted eight pots of colourful Pansies.

The first book is French Canadian; delightful, with human -like surprises in the garden. The illustrations are watercolour images on a blank background, which correspond to the musical DVD that comes with the book. Up lifting and magical, for early childhood readers 3-5 years.

A Treasure in My Garden

Stories and Songs by Gilles Vigneault & Illustrated by Stephane Jorisch

School teachers, this book will inspire a classroom to pool together to create a community of gardeners. To make a difference in your environment, and to be part of a better tomorrow, plant a garden.

The illustrations are bold and beautiful, they are full of rich colours and illustrate a global community of young people. A rewarding book for any classroom, ages 6-10.

About artist and illustrator

I'm a textile artist, resourceful and excited about making things. Dog walks with my pooch "Charlie" is inspiring and an opportunity to develop ideas from nature and people whom we meet on our strolls. There is a story behind my art making, it's in the series, I don't make just one but many from the same idea, but! not one will look like the other, each piece of art is "one-of-a-kind".
