Children's Picture Book Review: The Art Garden by Penny Harrison and Penelope Pratley.
Sadie dreams of becoming an artist one day, just like her best friend, Tom.
She adores colours and patterns, and wishes to capture all of the little things she sees, and turn them in to works of art.
When she sees Tom's work, she is happy and wants to create beautiful pieces like Tom's. But when she picks up her paintbrush, she just ends up making a big mess.
But when Sadie realises that she can create beautiful things in other ways, she is able to express herself fully and have fun whilst doing so.
The Art Garden encourages young children to explore various ways of expressing themselves, and to be accepting of themselves too.
