Robert R. Zakanitch: A Garden of Ordinary Miracles

The art from A Garden of Ordinary Miracles will blossom in an exhibition at the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Amherst, Massachusetts. Award-winning artist Robert Zakanitch celebrates the beauty of all growing things in A Garden of Ordinary Miracles, an alphabetical ode to nature. The delights of nature’s everyday wonders come to life for both children and adults in detailed renderings of plants that we grow and nurture in our gardens. Each letter of the alphabet is paired with a large colorful painting of a plant whose name begins with the same letter, as well as whimsical illustrations of other flora and fauna that overrun the pages. For example, Morning Glories bloom on the page next to melons and macaws, and Sweet Williams pop up from the ground with sunflowers and a seal! Packaged as the ultimate gift for adults, gardeners, and the nature-lovers of tomorrow, this garden book is nothing short of a miracle.
