A Wonderful Review for The Chalk Garden

The Chalk Garden written and illustrated by Sally Anne Garland received an outstanding review by Kirkus. The picture book aimed at 4 to 7 year olds follows the observant and nurturing Emma, who beautifies her cement yard. Kirkus notes that “while some readers won’t be drawn in by this gentle story or its protagonist’s humble goal, curious, quiet children will appreciate it and may enjoy engaging in a discussion about what plants need to grow and what happens when the seasons shift.” Read more of the review here.  The Chalk Garden will be published by Sunbird Books, and will be available March 2023!
