"offer(s) a new perspective to those who don't see themselves as creative just because they cannot paint. It opens up lots of potential for discussion about how each of us is creative even if "we can't draw a straight line.This is quality." "From a teacher's perspective `The Art Garden' provides lots of starting points in the areas of maths, language and looking at patterns and colours, developing different arrays, using a magnifying glass in the school ground environment and considering words like swishing and swirling. This book would be of value to a teacher in the P-2 area"
