Up in the Garden, Down in the Dirt by Kate Messner with art by Christopher Silas Neal. From waiting for the ground to thaw in late winter, to planting and tending the garden, through to putting the soil to bed after harvest, we see a year in a garden’s life through the eyes of a child watching and helping their Nana (up in the garden), and from the perspective of the insects, worms, and other organisms that help make the soil what it is (down in the dirt). A perfect book, simply and lovingly told, to introduce a child to the full life of a garden. Hardback edition.
