From seedling to flower, this picture book's simple verse and vibrant illustrations describe the beauty of both a cultivated garden and one created by nature. An author's note at the of the book gives tips on planting a garden.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Whimsical illustrations and lilting text show your child how a little girl goes about starting a garden in her own back yard, while the wind plants its own garden all around her. My daughter loves finding the bunnies, frogs, butterflies amid the flowers. There are even some tips in the back for how kids can start their own garden.
