Place to Bloom
Published By Boyds Mills
Review by: Yvonne
Being an artist and graphic designer, as well as an author, Lorianne Siomades shares her wonderful talents with us in this beautiful book. A Place to Bloom, is the story of a well known saying, One manís garbage is another manís treasureĒ. This
story focuses on the fact that we share this world with many different
animals and creatures, all of who view things in a different way. For
instance, the stream we like to visit is someoneís place to drink,
someone elseís home and someoneís place to think. The author takes us
to many areas and helps us realize that we are not the only living
creatures enjoying Godís wonderful creations. It brings forth the
realization that all things are important, from the stream and the trees,
to the birds and their eggs!
The illustrations in this book are big, bold and
simply beautiful! Done in paper, watercolor, and gouache, the pictures
captivate the attention of even the youngest child. . A lot of care has
been taken to ensure that the message the author is sending to the reader
is understood. We may not like our peas but someone else loves them, our
thrown away apple core is someoneís supper.
story is written in a rhythmic style it is easy for beginning readers to
master. Another book worth buying, I recommend this book for ages 2-6
years, although many ages will enjoy this story.
