"...It s a thoroughly handsome book, suffused with calm." --Publishers Weekly (February 14, 2011)

"...There s plenty to pore over and savor; this title would germinate nicely in primary classrooms and sow curiosity in one-on-one sharing. --Kirkus (March 1, 2011) ...from the elegant seed-full endpapers to the carefully selected font, this is a lovely introduction to the modes of seed dispersal... -School Library Journal

...A natural choice for curriculum connections. --Booklist (April 15, 2011)

Format: Hardcover
Though my kindergartener has graduated to chapter books, we still check picture books out from our local library. We are particularly enchanted by books with delightful illustrations, lyrical prose or verse, and a positive, inspiring message.

In Planting The Wild Garden, the reader is initially introduced to a farmer and her boy, gently tending to planting in their garden. As the reader continues, the scene changes to one which depicts seeds being dispersed by nature - the wind, rain, birds, animals, and plants. The lush illustrations are painted in beautiful, earth-toned hues that truly enchant and hold the reader's attention. Perfect for reading aloud, and used in the classroom and home. This is a book that I think will be a classic - to be enjoyed by both the young and old, and makes an excellent addition to any home and school library.

My 4 year old enjoyed the book very much. Illustrations are very engaging, especially in the inserts showing plant details. It's a great spring read for children and adults.

Format: Hardcover
In Planting the Wild Garden, the author does a great job of describing the magic of how the world around us comes alive with plants, flowers, shrubs, and trees, with the help of wildlife, the weather, and even humans. Seeds and nuts play the starring role throughout the story as they travel by whatever means available, eventually settling into their own special place to produce something wonderful.

The story is a charming journey through a meadow, enhanced by lovely pastel watercolor illustrations that set a relaxing mood. The language is simple and descriptive, and easily read and understood by emerging readers; likewise, the read-aloud story will appeal to preschoolers with their eager curiosity about the world around us. A wonderful way to introduce children to the concepts of gardening!
