The Art Garden - Children's Book, Review & #Giveaway! (2 Winners) (U.S.) Ends 4/17


About the book:
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.

My Review:
Spring is here, and we'll be spending more time outdoors. This book is perfect for spring and planting flowers too! "The Art Garden" children's book is about a little girl named Sadie, who wants to be an artist. She tries and tries to be an artist like her friend, Tom, who is a really good at drawing and painting. But Sadie isn't an artist like Tom. Instead, she's an artist in the garden.

This book can teach your children that even though they might not be singers, painters, artists, or dancers, that they just might be an artist in something else!

While my girls aren't great at Ballet, one of my girls is great at hip hop dancing, even though she doesn't know it yet. My other daughter is trying out ballet, jazz/tap, ballet and she's taking an art class. I don't know exactly what she'll end up doing in life, but what ever it is, she is always super determined to not let anyone stop her.
