Lines and couplets from Dickinson's poems paired with Carme Lemniscates' gorgeous illustrations bring In Emily's Garden to life, letting toddlers take a stroll in Emily's garden of verses. See the flowers, birds, butterflies, and bees through Emily's eyes, and foster a love of gardens and poems alike.
