BEHOLD OUR MAGICAL GARDEN is a collection of poems written to inspire children aged eight and up to explore all of the amazing things gardening has to offer. The content ranges from seeds, to vegetables, incorporating the watering of each root and the part the sun plays, and to the creatures surrounding gardens including bugs and birds. Each poem is unique in its own style instead of them being uniform, which is more appealing to the reader because you never know what's coming next. Some rhyme. Some don't. But they all stick to the gardening theme and the magic nature has to offer.

The illustrations are cute, colorful, and whimsical and provide entertainment to the educational text. There are notes about each poem in the back of the book to give the reader more insight into the author's writing. My favorite one is "Poetree" because it's well written and the words take the shape of a tree, including its roots. This unique style shows the creative mind the author has and the time he put into his work to make it truly magical.

Final Verdict: I would recommend this to fans of poems and gardening or for those children who are new to gardening and want to give it a go. It's an inexpensive way to learn about nature and to delve into one's creative side.
