Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2-Barner's amusing artwork done in paper collage, gouache, pastel, and pencil radiates off the pages as a playful pup shares the wonders of his garden and all of the living things that reside in it. The clear vocabulary and engaging drawings provide the earliest readers with a delightful story. Barner's use of perspective is precise, and earthy tones warm each page. Sam will strike home with little brothers and sisters everywhere who always get left out when the "big kids" are playing. Sam's big sister and her friend are having a tea party, and he wants to play, too. His sister tells him to go away, but Sam keeps trying to join in the fun. To escape him, the girls hide in a cave, build a fort, and then finally row a boat to an island. When it drifts away, it is Sam who notices that they are stranded and gets help. Full spreads of expressive bears fill up the space nicely as the lucid text balances well with warm hues in the pen-and-ink drawings. Simple sentences, repetition, and a large font assure success for children just learning to read. This leveled series supports core standards, helping beginning readers understand characters, setting, and plot while building reading fluency. Superb choices for the very earliest readers.-Melissa Smith, Royal Oak Public Library, MIα(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

I Have a Garden by Bob Barner
Audio book so not able to see all the things being displayed. Among the bugs and other flying insects
it shows other wonderful things that are found in a garden-flowers, a garden for all of us.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).

Format: Hardcover
I Have A Garden works well as an easy reader, and also as a story time selection for infants and toddlers. The illustrations are large and colorful, each covering a full two page spread. One line of text per spread makes this a great choice for very beginning readers as we learn of the flowers, bees, chipmunks, frogs and butterflies in the garden. At the end, our little dog learns that the garden is not just his but belongs to everyone. The perfect amount of text for the youngest story listener and just the right amount of words for the earliest readers make this a book that satisfies a variety of ages. When you add colorful illustrations that are sure to charm, you get a book that is a nice investment for any child's personal collection and a good choice for story time.
