Blooming Buddies in the Garden by Deborah Donner and Wendy Peterson is a lilting series of rhymes surrounded by beautiful floral illustrations. It is a book best read aloud and shared. There is something for everyone from pre-schooler to adult in this colorful and magical book.
The illustrations are colorful, unique and provide a foil for the sweetly worded verse. The story celebrates differences and allows the reader to engage and ask questions. It would be a great jumping off point for educators who want to talk about diversity and differences. No two pictures are the same, but all have a magical quality and minute details that help to bring the story to life.
I would recommend this book for anyone looking for a beautiful, hardcover gift of celebration - it would make a good shower, birthday or just because gift for the young person in your life, or those who are young at heart.
Blooming Buddies in the Garden is a 32 pg hardcover book with dust cover and available from www.bloomingbuddies.com and retails for $16.95
