Perhaps the first experience the average child has with gardening is from a book they were read at the school. It is Children’s Book Authors like Henry Cole who make the garden come alive on paper. In this post I share a wonderful event that took place on the East Coast to inspire a community to get in the garden. On Meadowview Street by Author Henry Cole Book Review is a book I recommend and hope other communities will embrace.
Childrens Book Review
On Meadowview Street
I’ve always been a fan of Children’s books and On Meadowview Street. would have totally been one I would take home as a child during our weekly visit to the Library.The main character reminds me of myself when we moved to Atlanta Georgia as a child. Our new home had plenty of grass in the backyard where we played but no flowers. I totally went on planting adventures just like the main character. I totally recommend this book for anyone who knows children even though the reading level is geared toward k-2nd. It would make a great book to give or just to have on your coffee table for visitors with children to enjoy.
