Fables from the Garden
- About the Book
Children will delight in this charming collection of stories featuring plants and animals often seen in Hawaii's gardens. A lone orchid finds friendship among roses; a kind albatross teaches a young frog about the joy of discovery; two greedy mynahs learn about sharing; a lazy blue ginger is encouraged to blossom.
As a good fable should, each of these wondrous tales offers a valuable lesson at the end — but it's one that goes down with a smile. Here are ten stories from a Hawaiian garden that will entertain and guide young and old, all illustrated in brilliant watercolors.
Recommended for ages 4 and up.
