What makes Eddie's garden grow? Earth, rain, warm sun, and all sorts of creatures! Eddie works hard in his garden- digging, pulling up the weeds and watering his plants. Soon the garden looks wonderful, full of tasty treats that will make his picnic with Lily, Mum and Grandad the best one ever!
Clearly and delightfully told, this gentle story with lively characters and colourful illustrations is also packed full of information on how to grow a garden like Eddie's for yourself.
Extract from the book:
"They collected some long sticks and Mum pushed them into the ground. "This can be a hide-out for you and Lily," she said. "Bean plants will grow right up the sticks to make you a bean den." She dug a hole beside each stick, and Eddie dropped a bean into every hole, and filled each hole with earth."
