A touching and evergreen message: With its rich illustrations and gentle takeaway about the transformative power of nature, The Little Green Girl sits on the same shelf as The Night Gardener by Eric and Terry Fan and The Curious Garden by Peter Brown.
For fathers and daughters: The Little Green Girl is not Mr. Aster’s daughter in a literal sense, but the two share a special and specific bond that dads and daughters will recognize instantly. This book is a perfect gift for Father’s Day or daddy-daughter story time any day of the year.
Kid empowering: By convincing Mr. Aster to help her realize her own dream, the Little Green Girl shows him that expanding his world view enriches life in surprising ways. As in Mac Barnett’s Extra Yarn, one child is able to transform the life of the adult in her orbit.
Introducing Lisa Anchin: Lisa has illustrated two picture book texts, but The Little Green Girl marks her debut as an author-illustrator. Her style is warm, classic, and inviting; her characters are irresistibly cute and full of life.
