There’s nothing like stepping into a garden and connecting with nature, and readers will revel in the pages of this beautiful picture book that celebrates these wondrous and inspiring places!

Gardens are glorious places blossoming with joy, wonder, and wisdom too. Whether it’s greeting the possibilities of each sunrise with the daylilies or appreciating what makes us as unique as the polkadot plant; whether it’s contemplating life’s thorns with the roses or standing as tall as a sunflower, spending time in nature can give us new ways of seeing. This flora-filled ode will inspire readers to observe the plants around them and appreciate the things that make each one—and each of us—special.

A young girl looks at the city gardens around her and uses the plants to remind herself of important things in her life. The sunny day Lillie's remind her to feel joy, and the willow tree branches are like her hair, so remind her to love herself. Yellow lion's-ears encourage her to listen, polka-dot plants are similar to her freckles, of which she is proud, and the water lilies rise up from the mud and encourage her to believe in herself. There are many other beautiful plants in the garden, and the girl tries to take wisdom from all of the different plants, and to remember that joy can be found in unexpected places.
