With lushly colored illustrations that tug at your heart, this lyrical picture book connects the love that nurtures plants with the love that nurtures our relationships.
Love grows everywhere…
From country farm to city square
From desert village, hot and dry,
to mountain home where eagles fly.
In Love Grows Everywhere, through gentle, rhyming text and vibrant illustrations, feel the love in a close-knit family who grows plants and sells them in their local market, and discover the types of love that exist in the many homes of their diverse community.
But there’s a new kid who is not quite so sure... Can the gardeners’ daughter be brave and extend the love to him?
Beautiful and characterful illustrations from the exceptionally talented Tisha Lee help bring this book to life, and the gentle rhyming text from Barry Timms helps underscore the message of kindness, charity, and love.
In this warm and charming tale, perfect for Valentine’s Day and beyond, there is love between friends, family, neighbors, romantic partners, and so much more. Love truly does grow everywhere.
Barry Timms enjoys the way that stories bring people together. He grew up in the rolling, rugged Cornish landscape but now lives by an old water tower in South London and is a city boy at heart. Barry can often be found with pencil in hand, writing or drawing, or both.
