Every child will love following the path of a single tear as it travels to a puddle, a cloud, a garden, which grows an onion, and produces — what else — a tear! Highly creative and unusual illustrations accompany this sweet rhyming story.
Students enjoy Glaser's and Higashi's stylized illustrations in Round the Garden. They also enjoy the verse, reminiscent of "The House That Jack Built." Students feel a connection to the author when they learn he wrote the poem at the age of seven.
