Captivating, very attractive and with refreshing children's perspective I loved reading this book, it is very well presented with colorful images, the reading is enjoyable and refreshing from Emma's point of view. It has interesting information that was unknown to me, I did not know about grafted vegetables and I found it surprising. She also shares with us her drawings, creative ideas, and photos with her brothers from her Emma's garden, which made me feel close to the author and appreciate her innocent authenticity. In this book Emma and her family inspire you to have your garden at home, to enjoy fun varieties of vegetables and fruits, suggestions of edible flowers, practical tips for your garden, to discover the richness of life in the garden including the birds and the beneficial insects that keep it healthy and in balance, even shows us how to build feeders and bugs and bird houses . I was interested in the book because I have a 6-year-old boy and we planted some things in the garden. My intention has been to sensitize him to the plants as beneficial sentient beings and that he realizes his importance as a source of healthy organic food. I think it's very important that my child does not fall into irresponsible consumerism and feel appreciation for nature. I have taught him to thank the plant for its fruit and give us its life in the case of vegetables, tubers, etc. It is wonderful to see the wonderment in his eyes and enjoyment at every step, since the seedlings germinate, grow and bear fruit. My sincere appreciation to the Publisher and NetGalley for allowing me to review the book
