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 granddaughter would so enjoy this. She gets a kick out of “helping” me plant flowers.

    Thank you for the detailed review. I think this book is one we need in all homes across America. What a pleasant place to learn about respect, values and kindness but in the garden. I try to teach my grand kids & sons, don’t pick a flower leave it for others to enjoy too.

  • Camille Hutcherson

    Thank you for this wonderful book review. I had been looking to buy my much younger cousin a book to read, and she absolutely loves plants and nature. She enjoys reading and drawing and I think this would be a wonderful book for her.
