I Love Grass by Maria Boston

There are so many things to love about grass. We can love the way it looks, the way it smells - even the way it changes its green from season to season! Read on to add to your experiences with grass. 

I Love Grass is a refreshing return to life’s simple pleasures. The book brings out the nature-lover in every child by calling their attention to this, and other, wonders of Earth.
I Love Grass returns young readers to a simpler time of wonderment over the marvels of the natural world. The newly released book by children’s author Maria Boston is published by Outskirts Press.
The first in a new series of children’s books, I Love Grass offers an alternative focus to today’s juvenile reader. The book draws their attention from the mind-numbing stimuli of electronics and computer-generated graphics back to organic things of beauty. It’s the story of one child’s excitement over something so simply ethereal – an oft-unnoticed and unappreciated patch of grass. Through this overlooked foliage, the young girl learns to appreciate the beauty of Earth’s abundance, and revels in the quiet presence of nature.
Parents will appreciate the lessons in I Love Grass, a book that inspires quiet introspection and helps lay the foundation necessary to build future generations of environmentally conscious adults.

Here is another spring story.  Very cute book for young ones that are just branching off reading on their own.  I love the illustrations.  They look like pictures of art done in needle point;  Very cute and captivating and gives the illustration almost a dimensional effect.  This book will be added to my classroom library.  For more information about this book visit here.

Maria Boston has always written children's stories. She pulls on her rich experiences from her own and her daughters' childhoods. "I Love Grass" is her first published book. She lives in Virginia with her two daughters and their dog. She can be reached by email at 

A copy of this book was provided by Bostick Communications in exchange for my honest review.
