Mary Quattlebaum announces the publication of Jo MacDonald Had a Garden (Dawn, Ages 3 – 8 years) .

Jo is the granddaughter of the farmer in the popular children’s song, introducing children to all the life in the garden, from bees and worms to toads, butterflies and birds.  And Mary adds, “Look for the cardinal hidden in each illustration by Laura Bryant!”

“Quattlebaum breathes new life into a familiar song with words that will inspire little gardeners everywhere – whether they have a sprawling backyard or a small city balcony.”
Anne Keisman, Editor, National Wildlife Federation’s Be Out There campaign
