Simple and evocative language and charming illustrations describe a boy’s experience in the garden.
In this gently rhyming board book, a young boy creates a garden, one small action at a time. First he digs in the dirt and plants seeds, then he adds soil, water, and some patience. With time, the seeds grow and the boy excitedly discovers what he has helped to make.
Elizabeth Spurr and Manelle Oliphant together create a perfect sit-in-your-lap reading experience for toddlers.

This board book will fit perfect in a little ones hands as they beg you to read it to them over and over again. The story tells of a precious little boy and his garden. From hoeing and turning the soil to pulling weeds that keep popping up. Then he carefully adds seeds to each row he has prepared in nice mounds. He covers the seeds with soil then waters each row. Now he waits and watches for the first sprouts to appear. When he gets distracted in play away from his garden he happens to glance toward the garden and low and behold he sees rows of sprouts. The child eagerly tends his garden as it grows and blooms then eventually bears fruit. The author providing poetic words and the illustrator in painting a picture come together to create this darling book of about a child and his garden growing and becoming fruitful. This is a special book that not only teaches the child to be in touch with our earth but it also teaches them patience. I highly recommend this book for a special child in your life. Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book for review from Peachtree Publishers. I was not compensated in any way for this review. Its is my honest opinion.
