My grandchildren like the three newest books in the bag book. They all have a gardening theme.
Potato: A Tale from the Great Depression tells the simple story of a little girl during the depression who ends up going with her parents from their home in Iowa to Idaho for two weeks for potato picking. In this book, too, the illustrations are fantastic.
We Are The Gardeners by Joanna Gaines is the story of a family’s love for gardening that starts with a potted plant purchased at the hardware store and eventually that love grows into a beautiful, productive garden. There are many lessons learned in the process. In this book, the baby in the garden at the end of the story is a big hit. The storyline of We Are The Gardeners is a little more in-depth than the other two books with a paragraph or two per page rather than a couple of sentences.
Trusting in Jesus,
“And every plant of the field before it was in the earth,
and every herb of the field before it grew: for the Lord
God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there
was not a man to till the ground.” Genesis 2:5
