Reviews

Great fun and ideal for reading aloud. Bath Chronicle Warm and realistic illustrations convey the details of a day of gardening. Mum loads two toddlers into the pram and off they set to the garden centre. They buy seeds and plants and even a tree! After staggering home, they have all the fun of digging, sowing, and planting. What a busy day and how delightfully it ends with everyone flopped exhausted on the kitchen floor. Book Ahead 0-7 Recommended reading. Child Care A charming book, exploring the gardening exploits of an ordinary family. The pictures are charming, full of detail that offers such rich potential for discussion. Early Years Educator
