Miguel's Community Garden
JaNay Brown-Wood grew up with a passion for writing and drafted her first series of unpublished picture books in the second grade. After earning a BA in Psychology from UCLA, an MA in Child Development from CSU, and a PhD in Education from UC Davis, JaNay still loves storytelling! Her first book, Imani's Moon, was a NAESP Children's Book of the Year and a Reading Is Fundamental Multicultural Book Pick. She lives with her family in California.
Samara Hardy has always loved to draw. Unfortunately for her parents, this was often on their walls and furniture...with her mother's lipstick. Realizing she might make a career out of this, she graduated with a degree in Illustration from Falmouth University and has since illustrated all kinds of wonderful things from picture books to reusable bags. She spends her days scribbling away and drawing by the sea in England.
A charming, educational book about the plants that can grow in their gardens. . . . Brown-Wood's words coupled with Hardy's illustrations create a colorful book for kids. . . . Perfect for introducing kids to nature and a taste of the garden-to-table experience. A great book for the green shelves. --School Library Journal
[A] cheerful second entry in the Where in the Garden? series. . . . Illustrations done in Photoshop with layers of hand-painted ink and watercolor textures depict a cheery, thriving urban garden teeming with bees, ladybugs, birds, and earthworms for children to spot. . . . This appealing title delivers plant facts in a vibrant, harmonious setting. --Kirkus Reviews
Hardy's colorful double-page spreads feature lots of garden detail and thoughtfully depict each plant feature Miguel examines. Along with the lesson on some basic plant biology, this book offers a breezy introduction to gardening. --Booklist
