4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful read 12 Nov 2010
By Steven R. McEvoy TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
It had been a few years since I read a book by Peter H. Reynolds, when his book Ish came to mind. I tracked down some of his newer books and was really impressed with both the stories and the illustrations. This is the story off a young girl named Rose; she is sailing around the world in her teapot ship and she collects seeds where ever she goes to remember the places she has been. Soon she arrives in a new town and decides to settle there. She finds an abandoned plot of land and decides to plant her garden. But when she returns to her boat, almost all her seeds have been eaten by birds. She takes the few that are left and plants them, and waits and waits. She hopes and believes that the garden will grown and bring color to the city. But the plants just do not seem to be blooming. Then one day a child brings her a paper flower for her garden - soon all the children are bringing her flowers and her garden becomes full of beautiful flowers. Then she realizes that there are real flowers growing among the paper ones. Her faith has been rewarded. Reynolds has a very distinctive style of illustration, often minimalist, in that there are drawings in the center of each page without having to cover every page from edge to edge. The artwork is adorable and the story is wonderful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Every library should have at least one copy 4 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback
Peter H Reynolds has a rare gift for giving really important life messages to children (and adults too!) in a light, feel-good way. This one illustrates the importance of having faith in your dreams and plans, and of the power of community in human beings. It shows how one girl, through her unwavering intent, inspires a whole town to create something beautiful that they ultimately share. Lovely.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must to share with children of all ages 22 Jan 2010
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Imaginatively written and beautifully illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds, "Rose's Garden" is a lovely story inspired by and dedicated to a very special lady named Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy, mother of Senator Ted Kennedy and President John F. Kennedy. Like its inspiration, "Rose's Garden" celebrates the sharing of natural beauty and the true spirit of community. Faith to overcome disappointment and endless obstacles is the true strength that builds communities, nations, and beautiful flower gardens such as Rose's greenway. Although Rose's teapot collection of beautiful flower seeds from her travels around the world are depleted by hungry birds before she can plant them, she still manages to plant a few. Joined with the beautiful paper flowers that are gradually given to her for her beautiful garden by children from many corners of the globe, her flowerbed eventually produces its first real blooms after many setbacks and delays. The charming watercolor and ink illustrations beautifully illuminate the gradual transition from Rose's gray everyday city world to the colorful, blooming reality of her perfumed garden. "Rose's Garden" is a must to share with children of all ages.
