Review of The Children’s Garden

Reviewed by:  Mojomums Sally

Childrens Garden (2)

What they say:  A garden can be a place for discovery, creativity and fun, and a space that encourages children to enjoy and engage with the natural world. Through 52 exciting family projects, this book inspires parents and their children to play and learn in the garden, with activities including nature trails, cooking, crafting and growing plants and vegetables. Ex-primary teacher Matthew Appleby (author of The Allotment Planner, 2013) is the expert voice behind the book. Appleby has two sons and has tapped into his first-hand experience of parenting and teaching to devise these seasonal projects for every week of the year. The Children’s Garden is the perfect companion for families looking to discover the magic and adventure their gardens have to offer.

What we say:  “A lovely book broken down into seasons, with ideas and activities for you and your children to follow.  One a week for the whole year if you wish!

Plenty of photos to help to give you ideas.  My children (and husband!) are going to love this!”


The Children’s Garden is published by Frances Lincoln and is available from many good book stores.
