My daughter loves this book. It has wonderful illustration, very colorful and a good story to read aloud.

We have a garden at home and I thought that my 5 year old daughter would like the book. To my surprise she was irritated and said the book was silly because you can't grow seashells. She didn't want to buy the book but I thought that it was cute but can see how she thought that it was confusing and full of "lies."

yet another example of why my kids know and love Kevin Henkes. He knows how to connect with kids and their wonderful imaginations. My daughter is still talking about planting seashells....Beautiful illustrations, too. Thanks, Mr. Henkes!

Read to a four-year old relative (over and over), who was delighted with it. A lot of whimsey - If I had a garden, my garden would have ... Simple, adorable illustrations. Just as cute as a button.

My Garden is about a little girl who after helping her mother weed, water and chase the rabbits from their garden, she imagines her dream garden complete with jellybean bushes, chocolate rabbits and tomatoes the size of beach balls. This was one of my favorite book by Henkes. The garden that he imagine that this little girl imagined was beautiful. This would be a great book for a writing lesson.

A cute book for springtime. I would use this book in preschool or kindergarten along with a unit about planting. Illustrations add to the silly ideas like jelly bean bushes and chocolate rabbits in the garden. It could be extended by a writing and illustrating experience about what silly thing a child would grow in his or her own garden.

My Garden is delightfully illustrated almost like childrens crayola drawings. This book is intended for 1+ to 6+yr. old. The main character loves to work in the garden with her mom and it's here where her imagination takes over. She is growing chocolate bunnies and invisible carrots (she doesn't like carrots) and many other childrens favorites. great read aloud and journal or big book writing activity.
