Say “hello” to worms, dirt, peas, and more in this gentle how-to guide for connecting with nature.

The beautiful simplicity of a garden is depicted through digital woodcut illustrations and engaging nonfiction text presented as a series of sweet questions and gentle replies. Less of a traditional how-to and more of a how-to-appreciate, this soothingly sparse text paints an inviting and accessible picture of what a garden offers. And with an all-child cast, the absence of an adult presence empowers readers to view the garden and its creatures through their own eyes, driven by curiosity and wonder.

This delightful book embodies the magic of gardening and encourages all readers, from those who LOVE the outdoors to those with hesitation, to interact with nature at their own, comfortable pace.

About the Author

Kari Percival’s illustration style is rooted in the woodcuts she’s been carving and printing for more than two decades. Kari is a 2017 recipient of the New England SCBWI Four-by-Four Mentorship. She earned a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a Master’s in Education and Environmental Science from Antioch University. Ecology has always been her favorite topic to teach, whether in the classroom or in the community garden. Kari lives with her husband and two children just outside Boston near a magical waterfall. On rainy days, she can be found rescuing earth worms out of puddles (because she just can’t walk by when they are wiggling for help).
