In the garden

Spending time in a garden can be a wonderful thing for children. They get to experience nature in a personal way, they can watch the way things change as the seasons roll by, and they can discover how rewarding it is to plant, tend, and harvest the plants that they grow. The books in this feature look at gardens and gardening in many interesting ways.
