Great fun and ideal for reading aloud. ( Bath Chronicle)
Warm and realistic illustrations convey the details of a day of gardening. Mum loads two toddlers into the pram and off they set to the garden centre. They buy seeds and plants and even a tree! After staggering home, they have all the fun of digging, sowing, and planting. What a busy day and how delightfully it ends with everyone flopped exhausted on the kitchen floor. ( Book Ahead 0-7)
Recommended reading. ( Child Care)
A charming book, exploring the gardening exploits of an ordinary family. The pictures are charming, full of detail that offers such rich potential for discussion. ( Early Years Educator)
