What would a story time about spring be without a book about gardening? This book, at first reading. became my favorite toddler book about gardens. The young girl who narrates the story helps her mother in the garden and then tells the reader about what a wondrous place HER garden would be with huge tomatoes and invisible carrots (because she doesn't like carrots!) flowers in all colors and patterns and whenever you pick a flower another grows back in its place. There are chocolate bunnies and sea shell plants and - and this was the favorite of my story time audience - a jelly bean bush where she is able to pick jelly beans by the bushel. With wonderful illustrations, this garden tale filled with imagination is a real audience pleaser.There are also lots of great opportunities for the audience to point out and count birds and butterflies.
