Illustrated by Henry Cole
Audience: Preschool - 1st Grade
Category: Fiction, Picture Books
Add Your Comments | Add to MyBookList | Email Review
A picture book about gardening for young children, this book spins a tale similar to the famous 'House that Jack Built,' but using a garden. 'This is the garden that Jack planted. This is the soil that made up the garden that Jack planted.' Throughout the book are pictures of the garden, the tools used in the garden, and the environmental particulars like the insects around the garden. Whenever a specific insect, seed, plant or tool is pictured, it is labeled with its name. While very young children may not understand the development of the story, the rhythm of the text and the pictures make this a wonderful introduction to gardening for young people.
