Florette Reviews

  • KC

    Loved this wonderfully illustrated book of a young girl finding a way to bring the green life of her country garden to the new city she just moved to.

    Adorable and inspiring! This picture book for children drew me in with it's sweet cover, and lovely interior illustrations. I'm in the mood for nature/garden/tree/flower books, of all kinds, with many April occasions soon to occur. Earth Day and Arbor Day are favorites, leading up to the best: May Day. May 1st is no longer much celebrated, but I have fond childhood memories, and a fun festival to still attend every year!

    Adorable and inspiring! This picture book for children drew me in with it's sweet cover, and lovely interior illustrations.

May 1st is no longer much celebrated, but I have fond childhood memories, and a fun festival to still attend every year!

    Returning to the book: Florette entices with its lush, overgrown, indoor garden entrance on the cover, and tiny Mae looking longingly through the glass. We follow Mae from her family's move to the city, away from her beloved backyard trees, flowers, and birds. Though she is initially disappointed in her new surroundings, intrepid Mae perseveres in her own gentle manner, remaining positive while she searches for a way to improve her new home.

    To say more would spoil the plot of the story, which has limited text. Every page has illustrations that steal the show... but the message is a gentle one that most children will appreciate. Recommended content for ages 4-8. Younger toddlers may enjoy the pictures too.

    The cover art is so detailed and beautiful. An amazing picture book.

  • Amy

    Very sweet, gentle story about a child who moves from the country to the city and is struggling to find and create her "quiet" places in her new environment. It is a sweet story about the power and importance of nature and how it feeds our souls. I loved the beautiful illustrations as well!

  • Kathryn

    Little Mae is adorable and her way of bringing her garden into the city is adorable.

  • Jesse

    A touching story sweetly illustrated. Mae's experience of moving to a new place and trying to find hints of her old life in her new city is universal. I loved how she ended up making her own place that made her happy, but I realllllllly wanted to see inside Florette!

  • Cheriee Weichel

    I can not imagine not having a garden to muck about in, so I have much empathy for Mae. Not only does she have to move and leave her friends behind, she also has to leave her garden.

    This picture book shows how she creates her own garden and makes new friends at her new home in the city.

    What a lovely children's book about starting a garden!

    The story follows sweet little Mae, who misses her garden when she and her family move into the city. Mae is lonely and misses the greenery, until one day she takes home a sprout and starts her own plant garden. The pictures are charming and inspiring. Recommended for little gardeners.

    Anna Walker writes the sweetest picture books, and this one had such a creative message of hope and transition. Super cute read with my student, who could not stop obsessing over the pretty watercolour illustrations 🙃
