Mr. Goethe's Garden
By

Rating
Mr. Goethe s Garden tells the story of a unique friendship between an inquisitive young girl, Irena, and her neighbor the elderly, world-famous playwright, artist and natural scientist, Johann von Goethe. Irena visits Mr. Goethe in his well-tended garden where he teaches her to draw and to observe the world of nature in a special way. Set in the 1830s, this book was inspired by Goethe s life and his botanical treatise The Metamorphosis of the Plant. Exquisitely sensitive illustrations and elegant text reveal the intricate wonders of the plant kingdom. As the bonds of friendship deepen between Irena and her wise neighbor, she experiences a new way of seeing the natural cycle of the plant from seed to flower to fruit and to seed again. Like friends, plants tell you their secrets only when they know you care. Just practice listening with your eyes, and one day when you least expect it, you will see with your heart and be swept up into nature s dance. An informative afterword describes the life of Goethe and his many accomplishments. (Ages 6 9) Click on the links below to view images from Mr. Goethe's Garden!"

Reviews

""To know someone here and there who thinks and feels with us, and though distant is close to us in spirit, this makes the earth for us an inhabited garden."
