Leçons de la Mère-Terre

Written by: McLeod, Elaine
Illustrated by: Wood, Colleen
ages 2 to 5 / grades P to K

Tess has visited her grandmother many times without really being aware of the garden. But today they step outside the door and Tess learns that all of nature can be a garden. And if you take care of the plants that are growing, if you learn about them -- understanding when they flower, when they give fruit, and when to leave them alone -- you will always find something to nourish you. This gentle story demonstrates the First Nations' tradition of taking care of Mother Earth.
