Book beginnings, Linnea in Monet's Garden
These are the first 2 sentences from this gorgeous children's book.
I am joining in on Book beginnings where we share the first sentence or two from a book.
"Linnea in Monet's Garden" is written for the 4 to 10 year old set, and all ages can enjoy it. The author is Christina Bjork and the artist is Lena Anderson. This colorful edition is the one I recommend and was published in 2012 as the 25th anniversary edition by Sourcebooks / Jabberwocky.
A girl of about 8 travels to France with her friend Mr. Bloom to have the adventure of seeing the gardens at Giverny, created by Claude Monet.
The colors in this book sing right off the page and it is a real spirit lifter.
I purchased this book to read to an older lady who has dementia. I am a volunteer visitor at an assisted living and memory care home, and she smiles when I read.
