Book Sharing Monday

Wow, it's been a while, Monday's are quite busy around here lately and I don't seem to get around to posting a book sharing book. So today I'm here to share this book, as we are at home resting and recuperating (see my last post).

Today we would like to share this book:
"And the Good Brown Earth" by Kathy Henderson

This book delightfully takes you through the Seasons on the vegetable patch. The story follows Nan and Charlie and their visits to the vegetable patch throughout the year. The illustrations are also lovely, showing the changes of the Seasons.

I found the synopsis on Amazon describes the book beautifully:

"Winter, summer, rain or shine, Nan and Charlie visit and tend their vegetable patch. Sometimes they dig, sometimes they sow, and sometimes they just lie in the long green grass and sing - and all the while, the good brown earth gets on with doing what the good brown earth does best."

This book is a favourite in our house as we love to celebrate the changes in the Seasons and as a family we visit our vegetable patch all year round, and often in all weathers. Hope you enjoy this book too.

Take a look at Canadian Home Learning for more book sharing or to join in.
