Giveaway Monday – Herbs: An ABC Rhyme and Picture Book


This week I’m excited to share a new children’s herb book with you. Written by Tamara Gondre Lawrence, ND, “HERBS An ABC Rhyme and Picture Book” uses short rhymes to convey singular facts about herbs from Aloe to Zea mays.  It is meant as an introduction, a book that children of all ages will enjoy.

Herb books may be a dime a dozen but when it comes to finding gentle introductory herb books for kids, it becomes a small handful. HERBS: An ABC Rhyme and Picture Book is a book to add to that handful. Featuring over 85 herbs, this book will delight and draw children (and adults) in with its magical illustrations and charming rhymes. This is a book that while your children will ask you to read it over and over,  you will not find yourself growing tired of reading.



Tamara’s  first book, HERBS An ABC Rhyme and Picture Book, is well on the way to becoming a children’s herbal classic.  Prior to becoming a mom, Tamara received her Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University in Seattle, Washington. She is licensed with the State of Washington and her modalitites include Western botanical medicine, classical homeopathy, therapeutic nutrition, physiotherapy, and hydrotherapy.  She specializes in family health, preventative care and education; as well as the emotional, social and spiritual aspects of healing.

Tamara is crazy about her family and friends, laughter, long walks, humming, dancing, cooking, baking, antiquing, birds chirping in the early morning, public television, and classic mystery novels.  She lives in Brooklyn with her husband Scott and their  son Malachi.

Visit Tamara’s website at The book can be purchased through Amazon.

    From my seven year old, Maryam:
    I like it because I love plants, and dandelions, I don’t know why more people don’t, they are so pretty. And my mother teaches me about herbs too, and we love them!
