About the Book
Terra Design Studios has partnered with Dar Hosta to present a team proposal for the Children's Garden at the Penn State Arboretum. This conceptual storyline represents Hosta's role as Literary Artist & Storyline Creator for the proposed Children's Garden. The theme of the storyline is that of the garden as lifelong friend. As a university project, the Children's Garden will be a learning environment and a place to promote environmentalism and Earth stewardship.
Dar Hosta is a children's book author, illustrator and owner of independent publishing company, Brown Dog Books. The books here on Blurb represent her work as a certified educator and visiting author and illustrator. During Hosta's artist-in-residence programs, children work with her to write and illustrate collaborative picture books in the style of Dar Hosta's books. They use alliteration and rhyme for the writing and the technique of collage for the illustrations. Information on Dar Hosta and her educational programs can be found at www.darhosta.com.
