A Fun and Interactive Book
PLANT THE TINY GARDEN’s simple illustrations and text allow readers to fully immerse themselves in the interactive aspect of the book. As you flip the pages, you do everything needed to make flowers grow: plant the seeds by pushing them into the ground, wiggle your fingers to make it rain, and make the sun shine brighter by rubbing it—soon you’ll have a garden on your pages! A ladybug on every page brings added fun to the book, and Matheson includes instructions for growing a real garden too.
Action is lacking in the actual pages of the book, but children will be busy working hard to make their plants grow, so it isn’t really missed. This is a good addition to a unit on planting and growing flowers.
My thanks to the publisher and YA Books Central for a copy of the book in exchange for my unbiased review.
