We are the Gardeners by Joanna Gaines and kids

We are the Gardeners by Joanna Gaines and Kids, illustrated by Julianna Swaney.  PICTURE BOOK   Tommy Nelson (Thomas Nelson), 2019.  $20.  9781400314225  



Five little Gaines children explain how they decided to grow a garden with their parents.  They started with a houseplant that eventually died, but instead of giving up, they kept acquiring new plants and trying again.  Eventually they ended up with a whole garden, and when the garden was at it’s prime, the goats broke out of their fence and destroyed their flowers.  The kids decided to keep trying.  As the garden produced flowers and tasty food, the kids appreciated all of their hard work and determination.  

This book is adorable.  The illustrations are attractive and expressive with an appealing front cover.  The story isn’t just about how to grow a garden, but the important value of not giving up and the benefits of hard work.  

Reviewer, C. Peterson
