An ABC Rhyme and Picture Book


HERBS An ABC Rhyme and Picture Book was first conceptualized as a way for me to teach my son about herbs.  I had so much fun painting and writing that I decided to compile it as a book with the hope that other parents will begin the conversation about herbs (and their wonderous uses) with their kids.  It is also an ideal book for beginners.


HERBS An ABC Rhyme and Picture Book uses short rhymes to convey singular facts about herbs from Aloe to Zea mays.  It is meant as an introduction, a book that children of all ages will enjoy.
