Personalized children's book titled "WHAT WILL GROW?" - I illustrated this fun book for kids about the different types of plants and seeds in a garden through the season.

You will receive a copy of my illustrated children's picture book "What Will Grow?" written by Jennifer Ward and signed personally by me, the illustrator. Choose the type of personalization you'd like (an autograph, inscription, a small doodle, etc) and I'll sign it for you! (See the 5th photo in this listing for an example.)

All the illustrations were lovingly painted in gouache on wood by me, Susie Ghahremani!

"What Will Grow?" is an educational picture book for readers ages 3-6, formally published by Bloomsbury. In its pages, readers will learn about different plants in a garden and the seeds that grew them -- including carrots and tomatoes!

**Four spreads in the book fold outward to dramatically reveal a surprise!**

The book is hardcover bound, 40 pages and printed on matte paper, 9" x 9". It will ship domestically via Media Mail in the USA unless a shipping upgrade is requested.

The book features a unique hybrid of my contemporary illustration combined with the educational strengths of the kind of classic nature books that teach children to love the world around them. Artfully written by Jennifer Ward (our fifth book collaboration!), I’m proud to be the illustrator of this educational but design-conscious book.

This book is available through traditional booksellers (ISBN # 9781681190303) as well. This listing is for autographed/personalized copies direct from the artist only.

Here are some reviews of WHAT WILL GROW?

"A mighty oak of a book . . . This lyrical picture book about the wonders of seeds will charm readers with its fun gatefolds and softly appealing illustrations of animals and plants." - starred review, Shelf Awareness

"Quietly lovely . . . Ghahremani’s art is playful yet refined, and the soft textures of the wood she paints on bring warmth to vignettes of dandelion-laden meadows, pumpkins stalked by a fox, and frosty winter fields. Well-integrated gatefolds add drama to some scenes . . . An enchanting vision of how strikingly different seeds and plants can be." - starred review, Publishers Weekly

"This bucolic companion to Ward’s What Will Hatch? captures the magic and excitement of planting a garden and waiting for it to bloom . . . Four gatefold illustrations will appeal to children’s sense of wonder, and informative back matter instructs aspiring gardeners on when and how to sow the showcased seeds." - starred review, School Library Journal

"Rich with organic material, this choice is as warm and patient as the ground that nurtures the seeds to new life." - Kirkus Reviews

"Featuring rounded, simplified botanical forms, the book’s decorative gouache paintings are playful and satisfying . . . A satisfying, interactive picture book for reading aloud." - Booklist

"An elegant interactive design and serene illustrations." - Publishers Weekly on WHAT WILL HATCH?

"Ghahremani’s picture-book debut features incredible hand-lettering and muted, textured tones . . . [T]hey work well in this quiet nature story . . . Science for the very young is done best through joyous learning; education will certainly hatch from these pages." - Kirkus Reviews on WHAT WILL HATCH?

The artwork, lettering, and layout are just breathtaking. Susie is truly an amazing illustrator. The little one especially enjoyed that some spreads opened in different directions :) A fun and beautiful way to learn about seeds (there's an awesome educational spread at the end of the book too!). I had to buy 2 (one for the niece, the other for an herbalist educator). My educator friend also found the book beautiful and was happy to have their own teacher book :) Beautiful to look at and feels great to touch. Definitely recommend! And thank you also for the personalized autographs and posters, Susie!
