Book Review: The Little Gnome by Sheri Fink

The Little Gnome by Sheri Fink, illustrated by Mary Erikson Washam.


Book Review: Set in a Victorian garden, The Little Gnome is a heartwarming tale about an adorable garden gnome experiencing the wonder of the four seasons for the first time. When Summer changes to Fall and then to Winter, the Little Gnome learns to look for the good in change. The enchanting story helps kids of all ages embrace change while learning about the seasons.


My Review: As a young child growing up inEngland I couldn’t understand why the weather changed so much.

This story is about the Little Gnome in an enchanting Victorian garden who has to adapt to the change of his new surroundings. He enjoyed listening to the sweet sounds of the birds singing and would bask in the warm sunbeams at dawn and rest in the cool shade. He adored the delightful garden that was full of playful squirrels, bees, geese and bluebirds. Then after a few weeks, he experienced for the first time that the leaves were falling off the trees, the sun woke up later and went to bed early. And when it started to snow he felt cold. The little Gnome had never experienced anything like this before. But when summer came along he was happy and appreciated the seasons for the first time.


The Little Gnome is beautifully written by Sheri Fink and illustrated by Mary Erikson Washam using bright colors which helps explains the concept of change and the four seasons. For a copy visit
