"Busy in the Garden" is a collection of poems and riddles about planting, growing, dancing, and playing in the garden. Its whimsical illustrations and simple language make it very appealing to primary readers. The collection describes the many actions that accompany gardening - digging, planting, bending, picking, plucking, and tossing to name just a few.

Its light-hearted approach to the joys of gardening take me back to my childhood when I spent time each spring and summer working side by side...more
The poems in this book are centered around what a little one might notice in the garden. Illustrations that appeal to the very young. Lyrical language with rhythm and some rhyme. Individual poems can be read as opposed to the entire book so the reader can honor the shorter attention span for the young child. Many of the rhymes are conducive to acting out so attention can be maintained. THis also helps with vocabulary.

Clever poems about gardening. I learned that you can grow Jack-o-lanterns by planting birthday candles with your pumpkin seeds. I particularly like the poem "Hoe Down." All put their work hoes down to have a little fun, except the scarecrow (what a stuffed shirt).
Great poems and riddles about spring time and gardening. I would use this book to tie into a unit about those topics.
