Gardening Books – For Children

Q: Could you/would you recommend just a few good books about gardening with kids in Georgia?


A: I love “How Groundhog’s Garden Grew” by Lynne Cherry but I can’t think of any more books aimed specifically at kids.

My wife, the reading specialist, recommends “The Gardener” by Sarah Stewart, “Jody’s Beans” by Malachiy Doyle, “Scarecrow” by Cynthia Rylant and “Flower Garden” and “Sunflower House” by Eve Bunting.

The Southern Living Garden Book is good for grownups and my Fruit & Vegetable book is full of gardening tips.

The Golden Guide series of books on insect and other creature identification should be included as well.
