My Garden, by Kevin Henkes

For those of us in the mid-Atlantic, it’s been a rough winter, but just reading this book warms me up!  Henkes’ little girl is her mother’s helper in the garden, but she fantasizes about her own garden, with ever-blooming flowers, chocolate rabbits, jelly bean bushes, hundreds of birds and butterflies, and tomatoes as big as beach balls.  Henkes’ bright watercolors make the garden a fantastical place, and his little girl reminds us of life’s possibilities.
