Lenny in the Garden vividly and simply portrays a charming relationship between a child and his parent. While Lenny's mother digs the soil and plants and waters some young flower plants, Lenny goes on a search for wildlife. He finds an ant, a caterpillar, a butterfly, a ladybird, a spider, and other insects — and all the time their dog Wilbur is trying to join in. It's a situation that will be very familiar, but the charming depiction of Lenny and his mother engaged in these ordinary activities is brought to life by Ken Wilson Max's bright colors and strong simple lines. Its portrayal of a mixed race family is refreshing, as is the depiction of a delightful and characterful black child at the heart of the book. With its short and evocative text, this book will provide young children and their parents and carers with much to discuss.
