  Let us go out into the garden, into the fields and orchards. Let's explore all these places where things are planted, sown, and reaped; where fruit is picked, where hay is stacked, where flowers bloom and where "sleepy old trees wave arms green with leaves."
  As we take a trip into this beautiful natural world through the paintings of Vincent Van Gogh we are able to appreciate how vibrant his paintings are. We can also see that he painted the everyday simple things that we can all relate to. The authors take us one step further by giving us a musical rhyming text which reaches out to each and every reader, making the journey a personal one complete with a slide down a hay stack and a fruit picking session in the orchard.
