More About the Book: Following a child’s visit to her aunt’s plant-filled home, she receives a loving note and gift from her aunt – her very own plant baby! This gift is followed by others, and with each addition, their relationship blossoms, and love grows! A year later, when her aunt comes for a visit, the proud young plantsperson shows off their indoor garden, a twin to her aunt’s and a cheerful reminder of their boundless love. Each spread includes a sidebar with a fun fact about the new plant.
Kirkus Reviews says, “The combination of accurately depicted plants with occasional silly rhymes and loving endearments make for a delightful balance of education and fun. This book brims with both warmth and information. A sweet introduction to houseplants.”
