Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dia Michels
Chloe enjoys Miss Emma's garden because it's not all in rows like her father's. "I like to let things grow any crazy way they want," says Miss Emma. Together they walk through the garden, and in these delightful illustrations, Chloe discovers bluebells and dandelions, shooting stars and bleeding hearts. Chloe wants to see everything. "What else?" she asks Miss Emma again and again. They watch the creatures in the garden -cardinals eating seeds, the deer eating flower buds. And what is the best creature in the wild, crazy garden? Chloe. A warm story where the child inquires and discovers herself.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2Chloe loves Miss Emma's garden because it is wild and not all in rows like her father's. As she romps in her neighbor's yard, she constantly asks Miss Emma to name things, from plants to the animals that come to nibble on them. Young readers will enjoy this naming game and will soon join in with Chloe to ask, "What else is in your garden?" All of Hines's borderless acrylic paintings, including the cover, spread over two pages, thus affording panoramic views of a colorful garden in full bloom. While it would take special conditions to have all these plants bloom at the same time, it is possible, and the sight is a joyous celebration of spring. Deer, rabbits, woodchucks, skinks, squirrels, and birds are welcomed by Miss Emma, as is "the best wild creature in [her] wild, crazy garden"young Chloe herself, who, like the butterflies that flit among the flowers, brings spark and energy to the otherwise tranquil scenes. Joanne Ryder's picture book poem Dancers in the Garden (Sierra Club, 1992) would make an excellent companion for a seasonal story hour.Marianne Saccardi, Norwalk Community-Technical College, CT
