Mrs. Spitzer’s Garden by Edith Pattou, illustrated by Tricia Tusa

I love the delightful illustrations in this book! Mrs. Spitzer is a teacher…and a gardener. Or, are they one and the same? This is a book that celebrates teachers as it metaphorically tells the story of Mrs. Spitzer’s garden. Alongside the story, Tricia Tusa has illustrated a most imaginative garden of plants personified.

The book expounds Mrs. Spitzer’s wisdom as she cares for her plants/students. She know they need love and care. Daily, she works in her garden and watches the growth and change that takes place over the year.

“As the seasons change, Mrs. Spitzer tends her garden. And then the year is over, and her job is done.”
