Review:From its spring-green endpapers to its beautiful, uncluttered watercolor paintings of an English garden full of flowers, birds, insects, trees and vegetables, author/artist Rosenberry's lovely book turns her listener/viewers into enthusiastic nature detectives. As in a real garden, we must look with care to discover a praying mantis, a green garter snake, a dainty field mouse nibbling corn, a box turtle hidden under rhubarb leaves, etc. This feast for the eyes should encourage children to look more closely at the world of green and growing things. A memorable work.
