Gardening with Emma is a kid-to-kid guide to growing healthy food and raising the coolest, most awesome plants while making sure there’s plenty of fun. With plants that tickle and make noise, tips for how to grow a flower stand garden, and suggestions for veggies from tiny to colossal, Emma offers a range of original, practical, and entertaining advice and inspiration. She provides lots of useful know-how about soil, sowing, and caring for a garden throughout the seasons, along with ways to make play spaces among the plants. Lively photography and Emma’s own writing (with some help from her gardening dad, Steve) capture the authentic creativity of a kid who loves to be outdoors, digging in the dirt.
"A wonderfully refreshing book that explores gardening from a kid's perspective, Gardening with Emma will make you smile, laugh out loud, and fill you with hope about the next generation. Yes, it's filled with heartfelt stories and useful gardening information, but the photos, illustrations, and tone of the book are all about having fun, and that's what gardening should always be about."
