Counting in the Garden written by Emily Hruby $14.95
COUNTING IN THE GARDEN celebrates the joy of growing flowers, fruits, and vegetables in one’s very own garden. This chunky board book is a visual feast from one to twelve. Young children will love finding and counting all of the garden treats. Every other page introduces a new plant into the mix until ultimately all twelve plants are featured together in the final, abundantly overgrown garden. COUNTING IN THE GARDEN is sure to appeal to eco-conscious parents and their “green” little kids.
Brother and sister team Patrick and Emily Hruby collaborated on this charming little book. As kids growing up in a log cabin in the woods of Idaho, they were raised loving the abundant nature all around them. Emily often made up poetic stories for Patrick’s imaginative drawings. As Los Angeles transplants, they each continue to pursue their respecitve passions for writing and illustrating. This is their first book together.
