3.0 out of 5 stars Has it's Ups and Downs.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on May 1, 2022
I was expecting more of an 'educational' book with gardening tips and bug facts but it's definitely more of a story (told from the perspective of a young girl gardening with her Nana). Still a very beautiful book though, just not sure how often we will actually read it.
