Emily Green’s Garden is a beautiful example of a child opening adult’s eyes to curiosity, newness and using their imagination. The contrast of their very perfect beginnings to letting go creatively saw faces that beamed with an infectious joy and the community bustling on the streets, playing happily. Emily has to compromise in the book, but she is still able to nurture her new love of gardening and means more people are also able to enjoy it.

This book is about using what is around you to create something quite magical, and taking something small and turning it into something potentially messy but perfectly lovely. Emily Green’s Garden is also about how when you’re nurtured and loved you grow into something beautiful.

It is heartwarming to see a book that focus is a child enchanted by the garden in all the forms that it took. To know that children who get to read or hear this story will get to see that someone just like them can take a seedling and turn it into a beautiful oasis
