Reviews
★ "Botanical joy grows by leaps and bounds in this radiant picture book."--Booklist, Starred Review

★ "A story of tender care and nature's contrasts . . . ."--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

★ "Glowing and warm, full of life."--Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

★ "Janet Fox's second picture book, Wintergarden, is a lyrically hopeful story about a young girl who learns nurturing green-thumb lessons from her patient mother. Artist Jasu Hu augments Fox's smooth text with exquisite spreads created with watercolor, pencil, and mixed media, resulting in synchronous perfection."--Shelf Awareness, Starred Review
