Book Review

I can't wait to grow all the things in my garden!

This is the most amazing book ever! It tells you how to grow stuff.

It’s super and it tells me about all the different foods and how they grow. It tells me about Strawberries and tomatoes and beans and potatoes and you need a net to put over them.  And then you can eat it all and they will be delicious!

Some of them grow in the winter as well. Don’t forget to water them. I grew cress and now I am going to grow lots of other things. The book tells you what you need to grow everything like old egg boxes or a trowel.

I loves the illustrations because they so nice and bright and show you what to do so you don’t get stuck. I can’t wait to grow all the things in my garden!
