I have had this book on my Netgalley shelves for a bit now, I just wanted to wait until it was almost time for Spring! I am currently reading this on the 8th and the weather is definitely improving for the better, it is still cold though. But I am sure it will warm up soon. And just like the girls in the book, I cannot wait to get back into gardening. Now just to hope that the garden centres will open so I can buy plants and such for my new projects.
We see two girls and their dad go through their very wild garden! Which has a pond, a big tree, a shed with something extra under it, and much more! It looked more like a wilderness or a visit to a park than that it looked like a garden. Haha, I guess if you have such a big garden that you have more space to let nature rule. My garden is, going by all the places I lived in, average in size. Not big, but also not small. Enough place to add some plants. But fully going nature, no.I
I had so much fun seeing all the things the girls and their father got up to to show that spring is truly coming. Insects that live in the compost heap are alive during spring, a bird is making her nest so sssttt be quiet don’t startle it, the pond is full of life and probably soon the frogs will start making sounds, and seeing them make a giant field for their crops. It was such a delight and I am honoured I could be with them on this first day of spring.
As I said before I love it when the title of the book pops up in the story!
After the fun and springwarming story we get some extra non-fiction information on spring. What it is, what plants grow, and much more. I am delighted this was added.
The art was just the absolute best and I love the style.
This was a lot of fun and I am sure it will be loved by kids. I would recommend it to all.
