If you liked Over and Under the Snow by Kate Messner, you will be happy to see Up in the Garden and Down in the Dirt. In the early days of spring, a child kneels in the dirt with her grandmother, musing about what is going on under the earth, and then what they see above ground. As the days pass, we learn of what is happening now in the garden, up where you can see green shoots and down with the roots too. Lovely wood block type illustrations show garden life through the seasons.

Kathryn Otoshi uses very simple numeric images and colour and rhyming text to teach life life lessons: in One she writes about bullying and courage. In Zero, we learn to find value in ourselves and others. In her newest book, Two, we read about friendship, loss, and letting go. You will be amazed at how such complex ideas can be conveyed so simply in the pages of a picture book and using numbers: odds and evens, mathematical operations such as division, addition, subtraction and more.
