How Does Your Garden Grow?

Spring is here and warmer weather is officially starting to make an appearance here in Iowa! What is your family doing to acknowledge this special season of growth and renewal?

Barefoot Books has several fun titles about springtime and gardening for all ages!

One of my favorites is "Who's in the Garden?", written by Phillis Gershator and Illustrated By: Jill McDonald.

Who's in the Garden? is a fun peek-a-boo book that introduces young kids to animals that are commonly
found in the backyard and garden whether in the morning, noon or night.

Who's Coming To See How My Garden Grows?
Rabbits hop, hop, hopping between the rows.
The colorful images and rhyming text are sure to delight toddlers! "Who's In The Garden" is recommended for kids age 1-4 years. Click here to learn more about "Who's In The Garden"
