What A Lovely Garden
Jack's Garden by Henry Cole was published in 1995. The full-color art was created with colored pencils on paper of different colors. It's pastel full two-page spreads show how Jack has planted and grown his garden. Around the edges of the garden it shows various items for gardening and then on the following pages it does the same with each new part of the plant life cycle and garden growth. The story is set-up like a "This is the House that Jack Built" style. There is a brief "how to" information page in the back. This book could be the book you base your Garden or Flowers Storytime time on. I would use it with Preschoolers up to 2nd grade, because the plant life cycle is studied in 2nd grade.
