Praise
"Even as the story elevates the wonders of nature into the realm of the fanciful, it reminds readers to appreciate everyday flowers and soil."
"Imagination grows and spreads from the fertile pages of this book to the minds of young readers. Henkes's familiar illustration style invites children into a most unusual garden."
"Kevin Henkes...has never created a more lyrically lovely picture book than MY GARDEN. It shows a new angle of genius to this already multitalented man....[H]e proves himself a poet for young readers in stunningly beautiful pictures and language."
