Nice thoughtful book

by passionforbooks on Aug 21, 2009

When I was helping 3rd grade students with their reading skills, this is one of the books we read each year. I enjoyed the story because I like flowers. Several years after I retired, my sister asked me if I would like some Lupines for my garden, not knowing that I liked a book about Lupines. Every time my Lupines bloom, I think of her and the book.

this book was a must-hav for the long drives to florida my family used to take. the parts i remember most about the book are the vibrant, detailed pictures & miss rmphius' realization that anyone can find/create beauty "in their own backyard". the proccessing & shipping of this book was prompt & hassle-free..........great job!
