Description

To everything there is a season in this beautiful story about gardening, seasons, and treasured memories.

This inspiring picture book written by Zoë Tucker and illustrated by Julianna Swaney—the #1 New York Times bestselling illustrator of We Are the Gardeners by Joanna Gaines—celebrates the friendship between a young girl and an elderly woman as they plant seeds in a community garden alongside friends and neighbors, waiting for the seeds to flower. By mid-summer, the friends welcome a rainbow of color in the garden and picnics in the sun. At harvest, the young girl’s elderly friend is bed-ridden, but jubilant as they share baskets with red tomatoes and snap peas amid the sweet smell of lavender. When the last leaves fall, everything is different. But in the spring, hope arises anew.

This is such a beautifully illustrated story with a majorly heartwarming message of hope after loss. I enjoyed the creative vocabulary choices and this is definitely one I’d like to have on my shelves for my own children.

This gorgeous picture book is about gardening, but it is also about love, loss, and community. Our lead character walks us through the year in her garden, which is also a year that sees the loss of her beloved grandmother. As she remembers her times with her grandmother, children are reminded that the memories of those they love stay with them. The illustrations are rich with all the colors of a Springtime garden, as well as a diverse community. I especially love the inclusion of different body sizes in the illustrations, something that is all too often neglected in children's picture books. Highly recommend for early childhood classrooms.
