A Garden of Flowers is a beautiful and heartwarming celebration of diversity and uniqueness. It reminds young readers that every person brings a valuable perspective to our world, making it a more vibrant and exciting place to live in. A sequel to Michael Rosenblum’s popular The Caterpillar and the Butterfly, in A Garden of Flowers we see the return of the butterfly Faith who helps bring understanding and peace to a squabbling garden. The book’s message is clear: we are ALL born as a special gift to teach each other about ourselves.
The delightful full-page artwork accompanying the story adds a touch of magic, bringing to life the colorful world of flowers and their unique characteristics. The story acknowledges that just as every flower in a garden is different and beautiful, every person is beautifully unique and special in their own way. It teaches children the importance of accepting and celebrating differences and diversity, and how our differences make our world a dynamic and fascinating place to live in.  After all, if all our colors were the same, we wouldn’t have rainbows.

    Genre - non-fiction early/easy reader/bedtime book
    Literary Style - allegorical/diversity written in American English

    A gem of a children's book with wonderful illustrations - it was a pleasure to read and turn the pages to enjoy the bright, bold, pictures, and expressive flowers - very well done.

    The main themes are inclusion, and understanding diversity with the concept being played out in a garden of flowers. The flowers are guided by a butterfly called, 'Faith' who believes the flowers can understand one another.

    If you have a diverse child or would like to open a conversation about diversity this book would be a great way to do that, I actually believe that some adults would benefit from reading it too, I can think of several politicians!

    Finally, a Garden of Flowers is worth 5 stars as it was perfect in terms of the short, simple blocks of text which still told the story, and excellent illustrations for the age range, while it dealt with complex issues in a simple, straightforward way.

    I received an ARC of Garden of Flowers. All opinions in this review are just that, my opinion.
