A lyrical, uplifting picture book explores the growth and continual change that goes on in a much-loved garden.

This is the sun that kisses the clouds
that cried the rain that soaks the seeds
that sleep in the soil, all dark and deep,
in Isabella’s garden.

In Isabella’s garden, amazing things come from the tiniest of seeds as they bloom and flourish and make way for a whole new season of growth. Told with great warmth and echoing favorite nursery rhymes such as "The Green Grass Grows All Around" or "The House that Jack Built," Glenda Millard’s award-winning story bursts with life. Beautifully complemented by Rebecca Cool’s bright, peaceful illustrations, here is a tale that is sure to win the hearts of readers of all ages.

Bright, sumptuous mixed-media spreads have a folk-art quality, while the simplicity of the artwork mirrors the lyrical text. The awe, mystery, and beauty of the changing seasons as experienced by the children make this a must-have book to welcome spring.
