This Year's Garden (Turtleback School & Library Binding Edition)by Cynthia Rylant, Mary Szilagyi
FOR USE IN SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES ONLY. Follows the seasons of the year as reflected in the growth, life, and death of the garden of a large rural family.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's WeeklyA pigtailed little girl tells how she and her family work through the seasons on the garden. In PW's words: ``Stunningly evocative, the paintings are a remarkable combination of deep tones and glittering shades. This is a lovely, unpretentious story.'' (5-8)
Children's Literature - Mary QuattlebaumAn especially inspirational picture book for gardeners in March. The book begins in this way: "A garden after winter is a wonder to see. All brown stalks and black birds working. Quiet. Just brown and waiting for someone." Then comes the planting and the harvesting and the eating and the canning. The cycle begins again as winter sets in, the crows return, and the brown fields wait for spring.
