"There is a secret garden inside every girl and boy, and there are special seeds to plant that will grow into joy."
The Garden in my Heart is a thoughtful book about sowing and reaping that encourages children to plant good things in their heart. Through simple rhyming verse and sweet illustrations, this book shares the timeless message that we all have a garden that can produce flowers of joy or weeds of jealousy and bitterness.
Customer Review: This is a simple book with a deep message that has the potential to be a powerful parenting (or teaching) tool. What greater lesson can we pass on to our children (or students) than the fact that we will reap what we sow? With gentle pictures and simple rhyme, Rogers writes about the value of thankfulness, patience, friendship, and more. She addresses the need to tend to the garden in our hearts: to pull the weeds of bitterness or jealousy -- and to plant good seeds and get good fruit.
