    1. Well beyond X-man’s current capabilities – but definitely on the list to read to him when he’s older.After slightly disappointing me with the straightforwardness of Jungle Drums Graeme has outdone himself in this book. Truly tremendous fun in playing hide-and-seek with all of the plants and animals (he conveniently provides a list of what to find, and how many!).At the simplest level this is a relatively simple counting game – the animals count down from 10 to 1. But the back of the book [...]

    2. Graeme Base has written and illustrated the most amazing children's book about the environment and the need for balance between humans and animals. Uno is a cute little character, a type of explorer that finds a beautiful forest full of animals and trees. He decides to live there.Each page lists the amount of trees and animals in it but as you turn the page it seems more humans have found Uno's hideout. They build a city. Guess what this means for the native plants and animals? In the end everyo [...]

    3. Book 14, Day 14 - Mini Family Classics from News Limited.Author/Illustrator: Graeme BaseFirst Published: 2006An environmental story of hope and rebirth focussing on original (made up), creative animals, plants and buildings. Full of visually striking images to make the reader look further into the story while overlaying the whole with a math lesson (Fibonacci numbers, as well as basic counting). The story is sweet and intriguing, making the book an interesting addition to our library.Graeme Base [...]

    4. Not my favourite fantastical animals but the message of this book, coupled with some great math conundrums, makes it a fun challenge to the heart and mind!

    5. As always I love Graeme Base's amazingly detailed drawing style, but here I missed his usual rhyming scheme. The animals in this book are imaginary and the message is one about being kind to the environment, making sure not to crowd out nature. There's a special creature to hunt for on each page and other counting and math going on for older kids. 3.5 stars

    6. Thomas really loves this book! The critters are fun, and spotting the snortlepig is a must for every page.

    7. I didn't find this book by Base to be as much fun as some of his others, especially Animalia. Uno's garden starts out full of lots of animals and plants, but as people begin to build in the area, the flora and fauna slowly disappear, until there are none left, and only a city remains, which the people eventually abandon. However, nature has a way of bouncing back, and gradually the animals and plants make a comeback. This time, though, the people try to build in harmony with nature, and in balan [...]

    8. The illustrations in this picture book take on a cartoon style as certain physical characteristics of the characters are greatly exaggerated. The characters depicted in the illustrations of this story have large heads and even larger noses that are clearly out of proportion with the rest of their bodies. These physical exaggerations compliment the fictional setting and imaginary creatures that are found in this story. In addition to the physical exaggerations, the illustrations are also full of [...]

    9. Son (age 6) says"I like to read this book because I like to count how many buildings, how many animals, and how many plants are on these pages. My favorite animals are the Gondolopes and the Puddlebuts. I like the Featherfern plants, and the Log Cabins."Mom saysMy son loves this book, and no wonder. There are so many ways to interact with it. The mathematical concepts are actually pretty complex (going from subtraction/addition to squares, exponents, primes), but children of any age can enjoy th [...]

    10. This book has gorgeous illustrations, and depending on a child's stamina, a reader can spend a long time on each page hunting for all of the psychedelic creatures and plants the author lists. The message is a somber one: if we want our Earth to last, we have to grow modestly, not exponentially as we have been. But, unlike many environmental books which can leave one feeling rather bleak, this one imagines a time when, after we've made a mess of the planet, the planet might recover with our lovin [...]

    11. What a totally fun way to teach kids basic math skills. Adding. Subtracting. Multiplication/Squares. Even exponential growth. I didn't find the "tree hugging" message too overbearing. Present, but conveyed in a tasteful way that will generally be met with little argument. The idea that people should be good stewards of the earth is one that generally resonates positively. How that is accomplished is another matter entirely. This book can also really encourage kids to be creative since the world [...]

    12. A clever, thought-provoking book for children, and adults alike. It's quite easy for a parent to tire of reading the same book over and over, but Uno's Garden keeps showing me new layers. Example 1: Read the story for a somber, yet hopeful story of our environmentExample 2: When you tire of that, start looking for the mathematical equations listed in the top right of the book. Example 3: Done with that? Now start looking for the Snortle Pig buried deep within the pictures. Trust me- he's there, [...]

    13. Finally, an eco-friendly book that isn't insufferably preachy! It's the story of Uno who goes to live in the forest because he enjoys the plants and animals there so much. Eventually more people follow him and the forest ends up turning into a huge city, where there are no plants in the animals. Uno (and the snortle pig) eventually die, but his children and grandchildren take up the task of nurturing a new forest. In the end, the book extols the virtues of living in balance with nature (instead [...]

    14. I love the creativity in this book, as I do in all Graeme Base's material. It's especially apparent here in the *kind* of creatures he draws, like the people. They look almost human and yet . . . not. The animals are ones we might recognize, but as strange, new combinations of the ordinary. Add a timely message about living in harmony with the environment and fun number games, and you've got a recipe for a winner. [SPOILER] I left off one star because the protagonist dies in the middle of the bo [...]

    15. "Uno's Garden" is about a boy named Uno who goes to the forest and decides to live there. He discovers many creatures. More people discover this forest and make the forest into a town. The creatures go extinct but things get better towards the end of the book. The texts of this book are at the top of each page with white space. This allows the reader to read the text first then look at the picture. The colors are bright and the creatures are crowded in the forest, so the reader really has to loo [...]

    16. Graeme Base at his best: a magical journey for children with fantastic creatures, with many numeracy activities embedded for older readers (and basic counting for younger ones) and a strong message about the need to find a balance between industrialisation and the natural world. The outlook seems bleak but as in another of Base's books, The Waterhole, it is not too late to reverse the damage if we identify the problem and try to do something about it.I sat with my 3-year old son and we pored ove [...]

    17. What an amazing story about the effects humans have on the environment. Not only does it bring up questions about wildlife, habitat destruction, extinction, and death, it goes the step farther and shows how humans can learn to successfully interact with their environment. In addition to the message, this book also give children the opportunity to count (down and then up) and for the more advanced/older child, the chance to multiply. It's an environmental tale and a math lesson all in one beautif [...]

    18. Highly recommend all of Graeme Base's books. You always get a good story, fabulous illustrations, clever visual tricks, and a puzzle or mystery to solve.This book also adds a very strong, touching story about man's impact on the environment in a gentle, effective way for kids. The characters and animals are charming and will appeal to kids. The story arcs from becoming sad back to optimistic for the future.In addition to the story, this book can be gone through again and again as a counting book [...]

    19. The book Uno's Garden, is very colorful! A beautifully written and illustrated book about how to protect the environment and why it's so important for the future. It is written in simple language for young children to understand the message. Uno is the first one to move into the forest, ( thus the name Uno).Eventually more and more people began to move in and over time there are less and less trees and it became a big city. The story goes on to where eventually over a long period of time the for [...]

    20. This is a beautifully illustrated book about environmental balance. It's a bit of a retelling of The Lorax. and while I enjoy the pull of the story in The Lorax a bit more than this story, the illustrations in Uno's Garden are really breathtaking. My daughter and I did a little school project with it where we looked at its comparisons to The Lorax and she seemed to enjoy drawing those connections.

    21. Graeme Base will always be one of my favourite authors. His beautiful illustrations are full of exquisite details that will keep kids enthralled with every page turn. This particular story is one of environmental math, and learning how to keep a balance with nature. Fun with counting for the young ones, with multiplication and exponential growth for the older ones. Lessons in being green for all ages.

    22. In terms of teachingThis book would be a great read aloud to discuss the concept of balance and the natural consequences of urban development. It would also work in small groups to explore a ton of mathematical concepts (everything from counting down from 10 to doubling to exploring prime numbers to multiplying square numbers!). This book is so interactive and works on so many levelsally dig it!

    23. THis is absolutely my favorite childrens' math book. It also has a wonderful environmental theme. My children love to revisit this one. We get out the calculator, (Jonah just got a new one and it is his new favorite toy,) and do the math. It is a tremendous work. We have been reading it for years. I feel like this about all of Graeme Base's books, that they can be enjoyed at different levels throughout a childs' life. Fantastic work!!

    24. I love this book. It's a little sad to watch the population growth. Parents will see what is happening after just a few pages, but the children will take a little longer to catch up. There are many stories that address disappearing habitat and conservation; but I've never seen one that puts the math in numeric and visual terms so the reader truly absorbs the impact.

    25. Nobody compares to the beauty and environment-conscious Graeme Base! Stunning color and artwork combined with deeper messages about nature, Uno's Garden and The Water Hole are two books that were on our favorite list of kids' books for years. My son enjoyed them most of all when he was in Kindergarten and First Grade.

    26. On a role here with the kids' books. This has incredible illustrations (Graeme Base) which keep you and your child looking for things like snortlepigs, snagglebites, lumpybums, and more. All crazily hidden in enormously detailed and colorful pictures. It's a bit long but even my 2-year-old gets through it, riveted. Highly recommended for kids AND their parents.

    27. As all of Graeme Base's books, this one is beautifully illustrated. The story is interesting and moving as well as a great jumping off point to talk about the environment with kids. We have read this one over and over again for years. Bonus - lots of math and finding games hidden within the narrative and illustrations.

    28. I forgot how much I loved Graeme Base. Fiona got this book for Christmas; thank you, Santa! It reminds me of the hours I spent pouring over the mystery of The Eleventh Hour. It's not quite so challenging - here the objective seems to be on counting - but the illustrations are adorable and the plot fun.Yay for newness in my nostalgia.

    29. I remember being read this book when I was 10 and looking at all the pictures thinking, "I want to live in a world like that", so when I read it to my 2 year old cousin and she was just as mesmerised, it made me realise that there might me some hope for our earth if children can continue to see the beauty in nature (and in good books).
