Doris Brocke of Dawson Creek has written a book, for children but charming for all ages, called The ABC Musical Garden. Filled with wordplay and humour, the book will make the ABCs easy to remember, and also the names of musical instruments and of common flowers that might be found in the Peace Region. That’s a lot to learn, and it sounds like fun!
Doris and her husband, Dale, own Rhubarb to Roses Garden Centre in Dawson Creek. This author is no stranger to her subject! You can find the book at the greenhouse in season, or online. Read more about the garden centre here. Or, borrow it from your local library.
You can find out more about the book on the author’s site, including a list of where to find the book in the Peace Country. Don’t forget to check out the other great things on the site.
If you have a favourite local spot, or you know of someone with a talent, tell them they could have a post here on Town Spirit! It’s easy: just email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for celebrating our Peace Country people!
