Sadie wants to be a painter, just like her best friend, Tom. She loves playing with color and finding shapes in unlikely places. But whenever Sadie picks up a paintbrush she makes a big mess. She spends her time working in the garden or playing with Tom, but, one day, Sadie gets a look at things from a different perspective--and makes a big discovery about herself and her own creativity. The Art Garden is a whimsical story about friendship and finding our creative flair. It encourages children to explore different ways of expressing themselves and celebrates the importance of individuality and self-acceptance.

"offer(s) a new perspective to those who don't see themselves as creative just because they cannot paint. It opens up lots of potential for discussion about how each of us is creative even if "we can't draw a straight line.This is quality." "From a teacher's perspective 'The Art Garden' provides lots of starting points in the areas of maths, language and looking at patterns and colours, developing different arrays, using a magnifying glass in the school ground environment and considering words like swishing and swirling. This book would be of value to a teacher in the P-2 area" "... gives readers, who may not be adroit artists, an alternative way to express their artistic desires. It is a visually and texturally gorgeous conduit encouraging creative individuality - and tree climbing!" * Boomerang Books * "there is more than one way to achieve her desires showing the reader to look for their strengths. This is a hardcover book with lovely illustrations" * School Days Magazine * "The Art Garden is permission to create anything in any way the reader wants" * The Sunday Telegraph * "a special story about the power of friendship ... it highlights the importance of creative self-expression." * The House of Wellness *
