Illustrated Friday: My Garden
I don't think it's possible for Kevin Henkes to produce a book that I don't love, and while spring and gardening weather is a little ways off yet, this book, My Garden, will definitely put you in the mood to plant something. It's a great tribute to imagination and creativity, with a little girl imagining what things would be like in her garden, if she were to have one. Flowers would bloom forever, they'd bloom in any color she could imagine, rabbits wouldn't eat the plants because they'd be made of chocolate, and carrots would be invisible because she doesn't like carrots. It's a cute, sweet book, perfect for a read aloud. Happy Friday!
