Counting in the Garden

Foreword Review — Winter 2012

Watch a garden come to life, as different elements are added to a young boy’s yard in numbers up to ten. The bold, colorful pictures in Counting in the Garden could easily adorn a shopping bag for a tony London department store. Making appearances both underground and above are earthworms, sunflowers, strawberries, watermelons, snails, tomatoes, and even thistles—which, the author informs us, grew by accident. Ages two and up.
