Read full description of the books My Garden:I didn't know anything about the book and was surprised to discover it is not so much about actual gardening (though there is a real garden the mom and daughter plant) as imaginative gardening as the little girl dreams of having a garden with no weeds or dead plants, and wants to plant seashells (to grow seashells, of course!) and jellybeans to grow candy plants. And there would be no carrots, because she does not like them ;-) Overall, I appreciated the imaginative approach, though I do love real rabbits more than chocolate ones! (You'll see if you read this.)
I love Kevin Henkes, especially his "mouse books" (i.e., Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse) and was so excited when my library finally got a copy of this book. Fittingly enough, it came a few days after we did some planting in our own yard and I read this outside on a very pleasant afternoon :-) I'm not sure this is one of my favorite Henkes titles (it just lacks that extra depth of the mouse books, IMO, and I am not as big a fan of the illustrations style here) but it's definitely worth exploring especially if you have an imaginative little one interested in gardening.
