about

This is my busy green garden.
There's a surprise

In clever disguise,

That hangs in my busy green garden.
This is a ladybug dawdling so,

Near the surprise, in clever disguise,

That hangs in my busy green garden.
This is a honeybee buzzing below

The red spotted ladybug dawdling so,

Near the surprise, in clever disguise,

That hangs in my busy green garden.

So begins this lyrical tribute to the bugs, bees, and birds that make the garden such a busy place. With each turned page, more visitors appear, and all the while the "surprise chrysalis" changes unnoticed until, on the last page, a butterfly emerges and flies away across the garden's well—tended borders. Back—of—book notes about the natural histories of the garden's denizens complete this lovely and lively portrait of backyard nature, which is also a gentle meditation on the rewards of paying attention. A chipmunk hides on every page to divert and engage young readers. Color throughout!
