    About "Patricia Polacco"

      • Patricia Polacco

        Patricia Polacco Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the In Enzo's Splendid Gardens book, this is one of the most wanted Patricia Polacco author readers around the world.


    1. My very favorite part is the statue that continually changes position. This is a splendid cumulative rhyming tale of what happens (a lot!) when a boy sees a bee and drops his book about bees: mayhem ensues. It’s particularly creatively done because each telling varies a little and so it never gets boring.On the inside front cover it says that the author/illustrator introduces the reader to her husband Enzo, who’s a chef, and makes the best spaghetti in Oakland, California, which I know from [...]

    2. This isn't what I've come to expect from Patricia Polacco! Not only is the text in rhyme, it's a cumulative story. It starts in a garden court at a restaurant called Enzo's with a boy who dropped his book as he turned around to look at a bee, which causes a waiter to trip and spill a drink, and then all sorts of fun and wacky accidents happen as a result. Of course Patricia Polacco's illustrations are great, but these have an added measure of wackiness that pair perfectly with the text. Even the [...]

    3. This is a humorous, slightly awkwardly rhyming cumulative story that really surprised me. It is very different from Patricia Polacco's other books, but still quite entertaining and witty. We loved the hilarious illustrations, the fun word play and the rhythmic tone of the tale. Overall, it's a very fun book to read aloud and we really enjoyed reading it together. Now, off to find more of her stories we haven't yet read

    4. Polacco uses humor, rhyme, and over-the-top illustrations to tell a cumulative story about a boy, a book, a bee, and a bunch of mishaps that take place in Enzo's splendid gardens.This is a great candidate for a read aloud, however, the text might be too daunting for little ones. The illustrations are the star of the book, especially the statue in the fountain. *An afterthought: While, I enjoyed the humor of the story, the illustrations are descriptive enough to tell the story without words.

    5. Enzo’s Splendid Gardens is quite a humorous book but one that uses wonderful descriptive details to make you feel as though you are sitting at the table in Enzo’s Garden. The little boy in the story is reading his book when he suddenly turns around and drops his book to stare at a bee that has landed on a tree. After the boy drops his book, the series of events that follow are quite chaotic yet pretty funny. The waiter drops a tray as he trips over the book, then two women spill their drinks [...]

    6. Although there are elements that make this cumulative tale rather hard to read or tell aloud, it still provides plenty of entertainment. Of course,that isn't surprising since the storyteller is Patricia Polacco who seems to find inspiration for stories in the most mundane moments. In the case of this one, what starts at a meal being enjoyed alfresco by a boy and his father turns into quite a mess and ends up in a lot of diners and waiters being covered in food. A cat even gets involved in all th [...]

    7. Polacco, Patricia. In Enzo's Splendid Gardens. Philomel Books, 1997. Print. My Choice Picture Book. This book explores the comical consequential events that happen as a result of one small little insect flying into "Enzo's garden." The quiet garden turns chaotic through these mass of events. The book's text builds off of the events of the previous pages, an idea brilliant in and of itself. However, the brilliancy really seems to stop there as the illustrations in the text add little to no signif [...]

    8. I wonder how much of this messy tale actually did happen at the author's husband's restaurant? The cat appears to be part of the family too.An enjoyable repetitive read, because of the mayhem, the 'lively' cheeky fountain statue and especially because the words are not exactly repeated. I know that my kids have always enjoyed the repetition because they could participate in the reading; even though they couldn't read. The confused waiter has "a very bad day", "a horrible day", "an awful day", "a [...]

    10. In the books I've read thus far, I've learned of Polacco's beloved grandmother, her divorced mother who became a teacher, her rotten red headed brother Ralph, the teachers who influenced her, her uncle, her inventive, color-blind father, and the children whom she bonded with as a child.In this book, we meet her husband Enzo. This is a celebration of Enzo and his Italian restaurant and his garden.A play on words, this is a comedic rhythm of what occurs in Enzo's garden when a small boy dining at [...]

    11. This book is not one of my favorite Polacco books, but it is still a good book! It has a fun flow for kids, but the words change slightly so while the repetitive is fun for them, the changes are exciting to catch too! The pictures (as with all of her books) are beautiful and funny! The first time I read it I was caught up in the flow, but as soon as I was done I had to go back through and look more carefully at the pictures. I can see children wanting to read it again and again, and laughing the [...]

    12. In most cumulative stories, the elements are repeated EXACTLY as they were before. In this one, the details alter in each verse, making it much less tedious to go through.Very funny story. The only real qualm I have is that for a book published in 1997 they could've shown some - or even one! - non-white person. Polacco writes a number of good books with diverse casts as a matter of course, so I'm not sure how she dropped the ball on this one.

    13. In master storyteller Patricia Polacco's latest tale, an innocent bee stops on a tree in Enzo's Italian restaurant. When a small boy turns to look--and drops his favorite book--the chaos begins! Polacco uses her rich and colorful art to complement this wild and spirited cumulative romp through Enzo's, her husband's Italian restaurant.

    14. This is a very good book to show fluency and cause and effect. I would love to show this book as an example of reading like a writer because this book has great repetition and flow throughout.I would also love to know what inspired Particia Polacco to write this book!

    15. This one isn't one of my favorites of Polacco's but it is cute and fun and cumulates into quite the catastrophe. The rhyming text is a nice and different touch. I lean towards her more in-depth storytelling pieces but this one was cute.

    16. This is a simple book that uses rhyme to tell the story of a bee causing chaos in the outside eating area of Uncle Enzo's restaurant. The words on the page surround and move around the the pictures. language acquisition through rhyme. Word placement with the wy the text is presented.

    17. Just too long and wordy for a story that is done in that repetitive building block style, similar to The House that Jack Built.

    18. A clever, rollicking romp in rhyme! It would be such fun to read out loud. The expressive, comical illustrations complement the text perfectly.

    19. One of those repeat the same line on the following page ad nauseum books. But if you can stand it, a pretty good one.

    20. Cute book with rhyming and repetition. Would be a fun read-aloud. Children would likely pick up on the pattern quickly.
