Publisher Summary

Introduce clever babies to classic poets with Gibbs Smith’s new Little Poet series. Avid gardener and poet Emily Dickinson collected 424 pressed flower specimens and wrote nearly 1800 poems in her lifetime, with nature and plants inspiring many of her beloved works. Lines and couplets from Dickinson’s poems paired with Carme Lemniscates’ gorgeous illustrations bring In Emily’s Garden to life, letting toddlers take a stroll in Emily’s garden of verses. See the flowers, birds, butterflies, and bees through Emily’s eyes, and foster a love of gardens and poems alike. Kate Coombs has written several books for children, including the award winning poetry collection Water Sings Blue and most recently Goodnight Mr. Darcy. A former teacher of every grade from kindergarten through college, Kate makes her home in Utah. Carme Lemniscates is an award-winning author, illustrator, and designer of children’s books. In 2010 she founded Lemniscates Studio (www.lemniscates.com) in her home city of Barcelona to create her own children’s book projects, which she both writes and illustrates. Carmen also illustrated best-selling author Jennifer Adams’ I Am a Warrior Goddess.

author
Kate Coombs

Kate has taught every grade from kindergarten to college. She is a lifelong bookworm and wrote her first poems in grade school, along with a Nancy Drew knock-off and short plays starring herself. Kate’s poetry collection Water Sings Blue won the Lee Bennett Hopkins Poetry Award in 2012. She has written poetry about the ocean, mindfulness, and monster kids, as well as picture books ranging from fairy tale retellings to a kid who takes on the Tooth Fairy and middle grade fantasy books that play with fairy tale tropes.
