Cute lift-the-flap book, especially considering I don't really like them.

Teenie Greenies board book series. Lift the flaps, rhyming text, simple pictures makes this a great title to share with babies and toddlers. The gardening process is broken down into 1 and 2 words and impressively some of those words (ex. compost) are words that are often missing in other gardening stories for kids.

I love this book! My son is 6 months right now and he loved the beautiful illustrations, but the book has a lot of potential for when he is older. I will reintroduce it when he is 3 or 4 for some fun context when he is learning about gardening, food and our planet earth.

I like the text and illustrations just fine, but my kid is too little to wait for the order of things for me to read it in sequence. A little less enjoyable random access. Also, I don't understand why the flap direction changes, it got a little confusing to point out where to lift.

Adorable lift the flap book that encourages using natural remedies for pests, compost, and seed saving. Love it!
