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 as a child and as an adult. The two friends watch the birds, fly a kite, plant flowers and play in the snow.
Two picture book giants, author/editor Charlotte Zolotow and author/illustrator Philip C. Stead collaborate across generations in this elegant retooling of Ms. Zolotow's IN MY GARDEN, originally published in 1960, complete with delicate, colorful illustrations.
