A garden's brilliance reflects the care and skill of its gardener. In this vibrant photo-essay, young children are introduced to the lively world of gardening.

The clear and informative text explains tips of the trade, like the importance of compost and worms to nourish plants of all kinds, and the right time of year to plant bulbs. Lavish photographs, many of which were taken in the Children's Garden at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, bring this much-loved hobby to life. Children will learn that gardening isn't difficult, it just takes time and patience. And best of all, the results can be both beautiful and delicious. A brief glossary is also included.
