Anna and Benjamin’s family has just moved into their new house and even though it’s in the middle of a busy town, it has a beautiful big garden for them all to enjoy.
Soon the family has made plans for their perfect garden — Mum wants a lawn and a terrace, Dad wants to help the birds and insects, Benjamin wants to plant beautiful flowers and Anna wants to fill the garden with tasty vegetables.
Join Anna and Benjamin as, with a little help from their neighbour, they spend a year learning about all the wonderful things you can do in a garden: planting, harvesting, playing, enjoying picnics and spotting wildlife.
Alongside the charming story, A Year in Our New Garden also gives real gardening tips and provides ideas for tasty home-grown snacks to inspire children to get outdoors, be active and learn how nature changes around them throughout the year.
This beautifully detailed, seasonal story is a perfect companion to Gerda Muller’s A Year Around the Great Oak. Gerda Muller was born in 1926 in Naarden, Holland. She attended the Fine Arts School of Amsterdam and Ecole Estienne of Paris. She has illustrated over 120 books for children and her books have been translated into many languages.
