Want an example of "the book beautiful"? Check out The Secret is in the Soil: A Beginner's Guide to Natural Gardening (Conquest for Christ Foundation, 2010), written by Flor Gozon Tarriela and Gidget Roceles Jimenez. This book for ages 9 and up is unique and its subject matter much welcome. Plus, Liza Flores has really outdone herself in illustrating and designing the book!
I was fortunate to attend the book's launch last Saturday night at the Manila Polo Club.
There was a good turnout, and aside from the crowd, there were plenty of plants around of course.
Below is a picture of Flor Gozon Tarriela signing books for the kids at the launch.
And here are Gidget Roceles Jimenez and Liza Flores!
Congratulations, Flor, Gidget, and Liza! Best wishes for The Secret is in the Soil!
