“As usual, the illustrations are colorful and engaging for kids and adults alike. Each letter has several words that start with that letter and are found in the garden. I love the layers of learning in this book. Not only can you teach your children about the letters of the alphabet, but also the various sounds each letter makes, things you find in a garden, and expand new your child’s vocabulary with words like “arbor” and “hibiscus.” Oh, and let’s not forget that this is a wonderful first seek-and-find book, as it asks children to find each item that the Little Rose sees. And if your child has read Sheri’s other two books, they will enjoy finding several beloved characters from those books throughout the story as well.” –Beautiful Books for Children
“The Whimsical World of Sheri Fink children’s brand is an excellent resource for award-winning and quality children’s books that encourage actions of tolerance, acceptance, and, perhaps the hardest lesson to be learned of all, staying true to the core of one’s self.” –Jack Canfield, co-creator of Chicken Soup for the Soul & NYT Best-selling author of The Success Principles
“Exploring the Garden with the Little Rose, written by Sheri Fink and illustrated by Mary Erikson Washam, is a fun, beautiful, and educational book to share with young children. This is a great book not only to help teach the letters of the alphabet, but also to introduce gardens and the things in them and what can be enjoyed while being outdoors.” –Readers Favorite
When my 5 yr old saw what had come in the mail, she literally jumped for joy! She LOVES The Little Rose books! Then she saw it was an alphabet book and she could not wait til bedtime to read it! By the time we sat down to read it, she had gone through the book at least 6 times by herself! It was very funny to have her ‘read’ it to me, based on what she could figure out from pictures and the words! She got to learn some new words like foxglove, hydraganea and Yew tree, while exploring the garden! I was thrilled to see that she remembered the lessons from the previous books, and mentioned them when we came to weeds and roses! As always, the illustrations are very cute and enchanting, and very kid friendly- Mary has outdone herself again! If you are looking for an adorable book to add to your child’s Christmas list, or to give as a baby present, this would be a wonderful one to give (in fact, I’d give the whole series)! –Bless Their Hearts Mom
I sat down with my grandsons and read Exploring the Garden with The little Rose. Once through was not enough – we read it again right away!! I love the vibrant illustrations and interactive style. Each page brought opportunities for my 3 1/2 year old grandson to share a story about his experience and thoughts about the words on the page. A wonderful book and a must for every child’s library! –Glee Girl
