Here is a book that entertains and teaches beautifully. Grandmother takes Tess, her granddaughter, for a walk in her garden. Tess learns that the garden is about nature; if she cares for the Earth, then the Earth will take care of her. Colorful and informative illustrations add to the quality of this excellent book. This is an wonderful way to teach preschool children about their responsibility for the environment.
