The Little Gardener

Publisher: Flying Eye Books

Review

This beautiful picture book tells the tale of a very little gardener who has to work very hard to keep his garden alive and well. But no matter how hard he worked, he was too little and the garden too big. He is certainly going to need some help if the garden is to survive…

The illustrations in this picture book are beautifully detailed and intricate and will delight readers over and over again. The story is told in clear text underneath the illustrations on a plain background so this book will be easier to read if you have any reading difficulties than many other picture books. With diverse illustrations, and a clear story to follow, this wonderful book is the perfect read - especially when your own garden is full in bloom.
