Book Reviews: Folk Tales from the Garden by Donald Smith and Pure Style in the Garden by Jane Cumberbatch
I am rather a fan of folk stories and have a few books I have acquired over the years. The skill of storytelling and the passing down of stories through the generations is something I think is very special. So when I was approached to review Donald Smith's book 'Folktales from the Garden' I quickly said yes. I have not paid for this book nor have I been paid to write this review. My words and opinions are as ever my own.
The monthly approach works well, with Donald giving a introductory section to each month. All the stories turn around the theme of the garden and nature: some relate to flowers, some to seasons and some to bees.
