Blooming Buddies In The Garden


Blooming Buddies In The Garden

Blooming Buddies in the Garden: A Blooming Book of Verse

by Deborah Donner & Wendy Peterson

Blooming Buddies in the Garden is a double award winning picture book for children. Written by Debbie Donner and Wendy Peterson, Blooming Buddies is a magical story of flower friends along side short verses that will teach your child how to have respect for others and other important values such as kindness!

Let’s go into the garden

Put a smile on your face

We’ll get to know each other

It’s a Blooming Buddies place

The illustrations are paired perfectly in this children’s book, magical pictures to match the magical verse that carries through each page of this book. Blooming Buddies recently won The National Parents Center Seal and the Parent Tested Parent Approved Seals of Approval. I am not surprised that these awards have been given to this book as it teaches many different lessons of being a respectable, well-behaved individual. Children learn how to have values as they develop reasoning skills and empathy throughout the pages of this magical story.  

I have a feeling this book is sure to become a classic! The story is unique and the illustrations feature vibrant watercolors that are sure to catch your little ones attention. Perfect for reading aloud with early readers, or the expert reader in your family!

My name is Nicole Napolitano and I am a full-time professional parenting blogger and work-at-home mom of two adorable and vivacious children (boy - 6 & girl - 2.5). I decided to develop MamaNYC in 2010 shortly (1-month) after transitioning from work-a-holic Internet marketing pro to the shoes of a stay-at-home mom (bored!). As a dedicated business manager for over 9-years, I was determined and positive that I would once again be a successful business woman -- whether or not I had a diaper bag tagging along! I am a New York City native, but relocated with my husband and our two kids to sunny Los Angeles in the summer of 2014. Leaving everything behind was scary, but it's time to make new memories. My interests include web design, Internet marketing, product development and research, SEO, movies, friends, and spending time with my family.
