The children’s book, Miss Lady Bird’s Wildflowers finally arrived this past Saturday. But with the holiday rush and lots of catch up to do, the review of this colorful children’s book is coming sometime this week soon. Today’s image is a quick peek at one of the illustrations, so beautifully done by the artist and illustrator, Joy Fisher Hein.
If you happened to catch the post a few weeks back, http://blog.bilowzassociates.com/2012/11/a-preview-of-whats-to-come.html you may remember the 100th birthday of Lady Bird is coming up soon. Her love of wildflowers and her legacy is one to celebrate and to carry on. That's where this book comes in, capturing Lady Bird's story for children to learn, too.
So perhaps you’re still scouting for an extra special Christmas gift for a teacher or a child. The thought of a hardcover book with color and text should not become a memory of Christmas pasts. As the opening line of Kathi Appelt's book reminds us, “Wildflowers,” she says, “are the stuff of my heart.” Speaking of stuff. Still looking for the perfect stocking stuffer? This book sounds like a great gift to me. Look for the giveaway and full book review later this week.
And as Dr. Seuss reminds us, “The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”
