Gracie’s Garden by Lara Casey — Book Review

Kudos to illustrator Jon Davis, for making this children’s book lovely inside and out.  Sporting dainty flowers on the cover and charming drawings inside, it will delight the eyes of your youngster.

The author, Lara Casey, draws on gardening experiences with her own children–Gracie, Joshua and Sarah who love to dig, play, and plant, and even more to eat what they have grown themselves.  The children learn how God puts little miracles inside each seed, giving every one exactly what they need to grow into scrumptious fruits and vegetables.

The narrative, although not especially inspiring, leads children through the process of planting, growing and harvesting a garden.  Included with the book purchase is an activity book which can be downloaded for free.  It includes coloring pages and other activities to use while teaching about plants and gardening.

VERDICT:  3 STARS.  If you are a gardener and want to get your children involved, you will love it.  Otherwise, I found it attractive, but not particularly compelling.
