Blooming Buddies In The Garden

Blooming Buddies In The Garden Review and Giveaway

7:39 AM


***GIVEAWAY CLOSED***

How many of you have little girls? How many of you love to read to your little girls? (My hand is raised here!) My favorite time to read to my two year old daughter is right before she goes to bed. She absoultely LOVES to climb onto my lap with a blanket covering both of us to read a book. Usually, her jammies are on and she is ready for bed. Unwinding a two year old can be challenging...but this next product makes that task an easy and enjoyable one!!

I have a really terrific book to share with you all today that is sure to enthrall your little ones during cuddle-up-and-read-a-book time!
Blooming Buddies In The Garden is such a cute children's book that is chock-full of water color painted pictures and poetry...perfect for any small child. It is especially recommended for little girls as the "characters" in the book are beautiful garden flowers!

This book is written by Wendy Peterson and illustrated by Deborah Donner.
This is Wendy...and her dogs! Aren't they beautiful!?!
Wendy and Deborah are friends who have partnered up to create this marvelous book.
Meet Debbie...she loves her gardens!
When Wendy saw Deborah's art work, she spontaneously began writing short companion verses to accompany the pictures. As a result of this partnership, Blooming Buddies was born.
Blooming Buddies In The Garden is a lovely 8X10, 32 page hard cover book complete with a dust cover. The pictures are bright, full color and very vivid. When this book arrived in the mail today, my daughter was trying so hard to get the envelope open!
I had told her that it was a book for us to read together and she was sooo intent on getting to it before I did! She was not successful but as soon as I had the package opened, she eagerly took the book and ran to the couch. She was so fascinated with the pictures! At her age, she is so much more interested in pictures than words so this book was perfect for her! I do read the words to her but when she is "reading" by herself, she points at pictures and says what she thinks the pictures mean. It is quite cute!
Tonight before bed, we snuggled up on the couch and read our new special book together. Blooming Buddies In The Garden is all about being kind, loving those who aren't perfect and being friends to those who are different than us. These are all really great concepts to instill into our children...especially when they are at an impressionable age like my daughter.

Here is a little taste of what is in this book...
Lets go into the garden
Put a smile on your face
We'll get to know each other
It's a Blooming Buddies place

The two of you are dazzlers
I'm a dazzler too
We compliment each other
What a friendly thing to do

Isn't that cute!?! I love it. I love how it flows all together and sounds so relaxing. My daughter ate it up. She loved it too!
Along with this book, you can also get stickers, decals, studio prints and fine arts prints...all go right along with the pictures of the Blooming Buddies book!

So, in my opinion...Blooming Buddies In The Garden is a wonderful book! I love the pictures, poetry and concepts portrayed through this book. It is a great tool for bonding with your child and keeps them captivated and entertained. Definitely a must have for your child's book collection!
In celebration of this wonderful book, Blooming Buddies is offering a great holiday special...You get a copy of the award winning book, three Buddy Sticker Packs (great stocking stuffer) and one ready to frame Studio Print. Make this season a Blooming Buddies holiday to remember!
