The German ebook edition of My Mother's Garden by Emila Yusof and produced by Anja Leidel has been commended by Stiftung Lesen, German Reading Foundation in a review.
The review noted that it was clear from little Dina's clothes, that she was not from Germany. Apart from learning about tropical plants and insects in the garden, it was pointed out that the book also served as an introduction to Malaysia and encouraged parents to add more information for their young readers.
Like Emila Yusof, little Dina is traveling far, making new friends, and introducing Malaysia to the world.
"The clear illustrations of the small garden shine in summer colours."
"A lovingly designed and illustrated book, which of course can be combined perfectly with a trip to the countryside."
