Random. Jan. 2021. 42p. Tr $17.99. ISBN 9781984830395.
PreS-Gr 2–Come stroll through Barrager’s garden to learn all about the flowers of the month and explore the ever-changing world of nature. In these pages, fairies with a variety of skin tones fly about teaching readers about every month’s flower through encouraging verses. Readers can discover their own birth flower at the beginning before taking a stroll through a gorgeous garden, with bright colors standing out even from a distance. Each page delivers four rhyming lines that describe not only the month, the season, and the flower, but also an uplifting horoscope. The spreads are even more impressive, creating different garden scenes with the colors of that flower and month, fairy friends helping one another, and so many other details. Like stumbling onto an enchanted garden, the possibilities for this book are endless: learning students’ birthdays at the beginning of the school year, playing a sort of I-Spy with younger readers, teaching rhyme, and more.
VERDICT There really is something for everyone to find and feel good about in Barrager’s flower garden. Children will love spotting all the details and hearing their own monthly verse.
