here in the garden
From Briony Stewart comes Here in the Garden, a tender picture book about friendship, love and loss.
A little boy who has lost a special pet returns to the garden, the place where he and his rabbit spent most of their time together. As the seasons change he remembers and mourns, and eventually comes to realize that being in that special place brings him closer to his memories, and that that in turn helps him feel better.
Here in the Garden is simple enough for younger readers, but lovely for anyone wishing to explore the themes of grief, love and friendship. It combines beautifully nuanced poetic language with a simple structure to gently explore the healing nature of time and happy memories – lessons that don’t just apply to the loss of a pet.
