Holly Bloom's Garden
Holly Bloom wants to be a great gardener but she doesn’t seem to have the knack. Despite suggestions and support from her family – all great flower-growers – Holly just can't seem to get her garden to bloom. She tries almost everything but her daisies keep drooping. Through trial-and-error and with great perseverance, Holly figures out a way to grow her garden in her own way.
The cover image of Holly measuring herself against a tall sunflower encapsulates her yearning to see how she measures up against the excellent gardeners in her family. This charming book uses playful language to teach plenty about gardening, but more about the joy of being yourself and finding your own true talents.

Each story is fun and engaging and gives the child something to think about and put into use in his or her own life. It’s a wonderful jumping off point to get a conversation started about how to do the right thing when it may not always be the easiest thing to do.
