The Lovereading4Kids comment

Children benefit immensely from spending time outdoors in the fresh air, and a great way to get them outside is to encourage an interest in their garden. This book presents fun and practical activities to do in the garden every month of the year, come rain or shine. It's the perfect interactive guide for young gardeners from 6+ to share with parents and to enjoy alone too.
