The Art Garden

The Art Garden

By Penny Harrision and Penelope Pratley

published By EK Books

Sadie wants to be a painter, just like her best friend, Tom. She loves playing with colour and finding shapes in unlikely places. But whenever Sadie picks up a paintbrush she makes a big mess. So instead, 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.

Olivia loved the  bright illustrations, as she loves to draw and paint its fun to get messy.

Phillip liked that you don’t have to be good at painting to be creative, I like building Lego and that’s using my imagination.

He liked that they were outside, and that she used dirt to grow her picture.

Phillip thought the book was wonderful and asked about receiving letters as he has only received parcels.
