Immediately I was drawn into the colorful and vibrant illustrations. The illustrations told the story before the text did. I actually skimmed through the book to see all the pictures first and then I went back and read the story. It's a journey of learning and adventure in the garden, full of flowers, butterflies and even caterpillars. I love a children's story that allows the children to learn while being entertained. Even if the child cannot read, the illustrations are enough to invite the child on the journey. I loved this story. I would recommend this to any child, especially one who loves flowers.

Surprise in Auntie's Garden by Ann Morris is an enjoyable book complimented with colorful illustrations to add visual details, and easy and fast to read. Auntie and Erin share a special bond and a common interest in the garden. It is a significant source of joy for both of them. When a pleasant but unexpected surprise arises, they have something new to look forward to in their flowery retreat. This is a lovely story that makes learning fun in every page. Morris keeps the storyline uncomplicated and the details simple. There are few characters with common interests and one central focus. Her writing style has a smooth flow from beginning to end.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
