In my experience children love to garden and they are fascinated to see seeds sprout and grow – especially when they can eat the end results!

This charming book with a very simple but engaging rhyming text and fabulous richly coloured illustrations will be very well received by young gardeners, particularly as it gives information on planting the seeds mentioned. Whether big or small, pointed or round, fluffy or striped each seed is a wonder is itself and the surprises that arrive are always exciting.

Containing four gatefold pages opening up to examine those larger plants like the always popular sunflower or a huge pine tree this will provide real entertainment and learning for little readers.

Highly recommended for readers from about 3 upwards.
