A young girl helps her mom work in their garden. Her imagination gets creative with colors and varieties, such as chocolate, jelly beans, and seashells. The text is easily laid out on opposite page of the coloring book style illustrations. Nothing too exciting,just pleasant and encourages imagination.

My Garden is a story about a girl who imagines what her ideal garden would be like. She describes things such as having purple polka dotted sunflowers and the largest tomato in the world. This book is a modern fantasy.

Cute story and illustrations. We like gardens and flowers and a creative imagination so this was an enjoyable read. ( )

A young girl loves working in the garden with her mother, but dreams of how different hers would be. Dreaming of jelly bean bushes, invisible carrots, and only chocolate rabbits.

Teaching Ideas: grow a garden with the class
  aehunter | May 4, 2015 |
My Garden goes into the mind of a young girl while she is helping her mother with the garden. This story shows how the girl imagines her own garden and how it differs from her mothers. In her garden the bunnies are made of chocolate, the flowers change colors, and seashells grow in the dirt. Kevin Henke's stories allow for the reader to use their imaginations while reading. The reader gets to visualize the little girl's garden and how she has made it her own. Imagination is so important amongst younger children and this story focuses on that. The class could plant their own garden and each student could use their imagination to decide what they want to plant. ( )
