In My Garden

A little girl and her older friend poetically describe the garden as it changes through the seasons. This quiet, intergenerational story pays homage to experiencing nature, and the different perspectives you have as a child and as an adult. The two friends watch the birds, fly a kite, plant flowers, and play in the snow. In the end, the garden is more than just a place to play; it's a special space that helps bind them together.

Two picture book giants, author/editor Charlotte Zolotow and author/illustrator Philip Stead collaborate across generations in this elegant retooling of Ms. Zolotow's In My Garden, originally published in 1960, complete with new delicate, colorful illustrations.

"Stead adds a woman... to the illustrations, perhaps the child’s mother or grandmother, whose presence enhances the sense of wonder and quiet delight in the spreads. Her kindly ways offer steady assurance that this child is safe and beloved while exploring the world. What’s more than that, the woman clearly nurtures the child’s love of nature, as when she hangs a birdhouse while the child’s first-person narration reads 'in the spring what I love best in my garden are the birds building nests.' A picture book to love best in all seasons." — Kirkus Reviews
