National Garden Week may have already passed but my kids are always ready to test out their green thumb and learn more about plants and what makes them grow. As a homeschooling family, we believe that learning doesn't stop just because the seasons change. A few years ago, our son asked for a composter for his birthday. We were amused by his wish, but it was practical and would help cut down on our waste going to a landfill so my parents bought one for him. He quickly started observing how things would break down and would give us daily reports on what his compost looked like. I loved his passion for observational learning!  I'm pleased to introduce you to a newly published children's book about gardening from seasoned author Peggy Thomas. Feed your child's curiosity with this new engaging book The Soil In Jackie's Garden, it's packed with STEM facts about gardening! Take a peek inside the pages and watch the trailer below, then be sure to enter the giveaway for a chance to win. 

The Soil in Jackie’s Garden introduces budding gardeners to the magic happening in their very own backyard with beautiful visuals that open vertically to showcase the secrets beneath the surface of the soil. Follow Jackie and her diverse group of friends as they meet pollinators, measure progress, and patiently wait for their sweet snacks to grow. But it doesn't stop there — the soil is packed with critters creating compost for next season's seeds!

Written in the cumulative style of “The House that Jack Built,” the catchy alliterations and engaging illustrations are interwoven with scientific facts that teach young readers about the life cycle of a plant, the natural processes that create new soil, and the importance of composting for a sustainable garden.
