Mr. Goethe's Garden


Mr. Goethes Garden tells the story of a unique friendship between an inquisitive young girl, Irena, and her neighborthe elderly, world-famous playwright, artist and natural scientist, Johann von Goethe. Irena visits Mr. Goethe in his well-tended garden where he teaches her to draw and to observe the world of nature in a special way. Set in the 1830s, this book was inspired by Goethes life and his botanical treatise The Metamorphosis of the Plant. Exquisitely sensitive illustrations and elegant text reveal the intricate wonders of the plant kingdom. As the bonds of friendship deepen between Irena and her wise neighbor, she experiences a new way of seeing the natural cycle of the plantfrom seed to flower to fruit and to seed again. Like friends, plants tell you their secrets only when they know you care. Just practice listening with your eyes, and one day when you least expect it, you will see with your heart and be swept up into natures dance. An informative afterword describes the life of Goethe and his many accomplishments. (Ages 69)
