I received A Peaceful Garden for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
With comforting text from Lucy London and charming illustrations from Christa Pierce, A Peaceful Garden shows young readers everything a peaceful garden needs to grow.
Two cats lead the way as young readers learn how to choose seeds, dig holes, and water their plants to create their own peaceful garden. From carrots and lettuce to sunflowers and daisies, this is a garden that children will be eager to plant and tend.
Lucy London lives on the West Coast, where she tends her own small garden with the help of her big gray cat.
Christa Pierce has loved painting and telling stories ever since she was a little girl. She studied illustration at Seattle Pacific University, where she received her BA in art. She is a lover of tea and acrylic paint?but not together. Christa usually paints in acrylic, oil, or watercolor, with shading and detail. Her work has been exhibited at the Seattle Pacific University Art Center Gallery and featured in Response magazine. She lives in Portland, Oregon, with her trusty little dog, Sir Lancelot.
I think this is a super sweet book just perfect for Spring. Lil Sis is 6 and she adores cats and flowers so this was an instant hit with her. My only problem is now she wants me to help her create her own garden and I have no green thumbs! Maybe this book will inspire me to get outside and start planting. Let your own little library grow with the addition of A Peaceful Garden.
