Great series of stories

All of these fun stories were thoroughly enjoyed by myself, my 7 year old and my 5 year old. I highly recommend this book.

Sweet and Delightful! Perfect for bedtime & beyond

A Year in the Big Old Garden is a gem. Witmer’s stories are sweet and delightful. I enjoyed them as much as my kids did. These short, charming tales are perfect for bedtime or any moment you might wish to welcome your kids into a familiar-feeling fantasy of ordinary, magical creatures in a magical, ordinary world.

The reader did a fantastic job bringing these tales to life on audio. Well worth a listen!
