Posted by Nancy Kreith -

To learn more about the book please visit: or refer to the reviews below.

Our Generous Garden is a fine example of how children can share delightful garden experiences and lessons with their peers. It encourages children to think about the little, but important things in life; eating right, exercising, nurturing and enjoying the great outdoors. The captivating story and innovative graphics grab your attention, while Anne Nagro cleverly sneaks fun facts into a floating lady bug caption.

Anne Nagro has captured an inspiring, real-life story of creating and exploring a school garden with Our Generous Garden. This book will be a great asset to teachers trying to get their students to think about what their garden might be like. Our Generous Garden has great examples of both what to grow and what to do with the harvested vegetables. Students will be excited!
