Mrs. McGee's Garden is a creative tale that teaches the lesson "just be yourself." Its main character, "Whitman," is a grass envious of his attractive flower garden friends. Whitman goes on a journey to win the heart and acceptance of Mrs. McGee, the garden owner. But when he tries to impersonate a flower, Whitman's journey leads him down a path of trouble that exposes him to Mrs. McGee. "Whitman hung his head low and accepted his demise, but what McGee did next was quite a surprise." Mrs. McGee's surprise reminds us that it's our differences than make us beautiful and that in the end, self acceptance is more important than fitting in. Mrs. McGee's Garden presents a few more lessons - "don't be envious of others" and "appreciate everything around you," in a very entertaining and effective way. The colorful and captivating artwork makes the characters emotionally engaging.This book is an excellent story for parents to read with their kids, and for early readers to master on their own. Parents will enjoy watching their kids relate to the characters in real life, the next time they're out playing on the grass. About the Author This is Lan Nguyen's first children's book.

Long famous for its charming courtyard gardens in the peninsula’s historic district, Charleston, South Carolina, has a remarkable southern landscape that also includes dozens of exquisite private gardens, city parks, cemeteries, institutional gardens, and even an urban farm. In Charleston: City of Gardens, Louisa Pringle Cameron shares the splendor of these gems along with accounts from garden owners, an urban forester, a city horticulturalist, and other overseers of the Holy City’s beautiful green spaces. By exploring gardens beyond the Lower Peninsula, Cameron reveals the enormous scope of gardening within the city. Charleston’s moderate climate, lengthy growing season, and generous annual rainfall allow thousands of tree and other plant species to thrive. Even certain tropical plants flourish in protected locations. While the more than two hundred color images in Charleston cannot do justice to actually experiencing a lush southern garden with its visual and tactile feasts, gentle sounds of running water and birdsong, and sweet fragrances, they can serve as an inspiration and guide to planning a garden or perhaps a memorable vacation in the Carolinas.
