"The Very Lonely Garden", profound in its simplicity, is a delightful and heart warming story about two gardens. One is filled with lovely flowers, singing children and many kinds of flying and fluttering creatures. It even has a pet dragon! Next door is a very sad and lonely garden. The children have all moved away and there aren't any butterflies, birds or bees. The story teaches us about compassion, caring and taking action. it illuminates how sharing joy and friendship makes an impact that is felt around the world.
Just as in "The Flying Phlox" book, all of the illustrations are taken from a single painting and add to the charm of this lovely story. The nature and character building themes are universal and perfect for teachers, parents and caregivers.
