To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
First of all let me say that this books illustrations are really inventive, more art than anything else. This book is good to own just from that point of view. The story itself is pitched from a childs point of view expressing thoughts and ideas that many children could relate to. This book is easy reading for the parent and unlike other childrens books is a pleasure to read each time. Great for 2.5+ year olds
Such a beautiful story for another mother and daughter. Gave as a gift to my little 3.5 year old cousin and her mother on her "Gotcha Day" anniversary. My aunt is a landscape designer and loves passing on her love of nature to her daughters, so this was absolutely perfect!
I first got this book from the library to read to my class for our unit on plants. I loved it so much i ended up buying it. Its great to incorporate writing into our reading and science lesson and the kids love to be able to come up with their own ideas of what their gardens would look like.
I was not sure of this one, as I have two grandsons who love plants right now. I thought maybe with the girl on the front, it wouldn't suit them. They both love this book. The 5 yr. old likes that he can have the garden his way and the 2 yr old likes the beauty of the flowers and that they would grow back when cut. We read this one several times a day and both boys sit to listen when one chooses it.
Beautifully illustrated book that typifies Kevin Henkes' gift as a children's writer. Both of my kids love it even though I bought it for my daughter when she was four. It is a great gift for the Easter basket or for a spring/summer birthday.
This little girl helps her mother work in her mother's garden. However, she would do things differently in her garden. For instance, her garden would have flowers that change colors, rabbits that she wouldn't have to chase because they would be chocolate and she could eat them, and invisible carrots because she doesn't like carrots.
