Little Gloria's Garden
I Am Proud of Me
by Angela Buchanan

Little Gloria wants to make a garden with her mama. She learns to plant the seeds, water the soil, and remove the weeds. Helping the garden takes patience, gentle hands, and attention, but little Gloria is determined.

Little Gloria’s Garden reminds young readers of all they can accomplish when they set a goal and persevere.

Angela Buchanan was inspired to write Little Gloria’s Garden while watching her brother teach her five-year-old how to plant her first garlic crop. Angela loves gardening, spending time outdoors with friends and family, reading and writing, and travelling.

Angela self-identifies as a Canadian with European and North American First Nations Heritage. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing, a diploma in Human Services and teaches as a Childbirth educator. Angela lives in Surrey, British Columbia, with her daughter and their tabby cats.

I would like to acknowledge the shared, unceded traditional territory of the Katzie, Semiahmoo, Kwantlen and other Coast Salish Peoples on which I work, play and learn.
