The Little Gardener: A Parable On The Power of Working with Love

“The Little Gardener” is a picture book by Emily Hughes, which is “at heart a parable of purpose — tender assurance for anyone who has ever undertaken a labor of love against seemingly insurmountable odds and persevered through hardship, continuing to nourishing that labor until the love emanates out, becomes contagious, and draws in kindred spirits as a centripetal force of shared purpose and enthusiasm.” Here, we can see Hughes’ vibrant illustrations that capture both human tenderness and attention, as well as the beauty of wilderness.
