"Exploring the Garden with the Little Rose," written by Sheri Fink and illustrated by Mary Erikson Washam, is a fun, beautiful, and educational book to share with young children. This book teaches the alphabet and identifies different objects throughout the garden whose names begin with each letter. Each page of the book is devoted to a different letter. The page for letter "C" asks the reader to point out the caterpillar, cardinal and cricket while the objects for letter "G" are goose, gnome, grass and gate. The illustrations include each of the objects listed for each letter.
This is a great book for teaching the alphabet as well as identifying different things whose names begin with different letters of the alphabet. The objects that are included are what one may see while being outside in a garden and therefore are different from the objects typically included in a "learning the alphabet" type book. As the books asks "can you find, " "where are," or "do you see," this book becomes very interactive. It helps children to identify what different objects look like. Therefore, this is a great book not only to help teach the letters of the alphabet, but also to introduce gardens and the things in them and what can be enjoyed while being outdoors. The illustrations are beautiful and soothing and fun for children to look at as they are filled with many details.
