Now that school’s out and summer has set in, kids NEED something to keep those little hands busy. As a gardener, I know there’s no better fun than playing in a garden.

“Playing, you say?”

Yes, playing. From butterflies to caterpillars, frogs to worms, there’s always something interesting to see in the garden and with those long summer days ahead of us, kids NEED interesting stuff to do. Fun stuff, too. As a mother, I completely understand this thirst for adventure which is why I’m offering up a pair of gardening gloves, pot, pepper seeds and book #1 in the Wild Tales & Garden Thrills series for one lucky winner during the Lots for Tots! Giveaway via our hosts The Kids Did It and The Mommy Island.

Once you read Show Me the Green! and plant your seeds, you’ll be chomping at the bit to read book #2, Beans, Greens & Grades. Available July 2016. It’s sustainability education for kids at its BEST.

Beans, Greens & Grades

Lexi and Jason Williams take center stage at school when Principal Gordon enlists their help to establish a school garden at Beacon Academy. The kids are thrilled to be selected as Green Ambassadors for this important project, but quickly learn how challenging it can be to work with others toward a common goal. Not only must they teach their fellow students how to garden, Lexi and Jason feel the pressure to make it fun and exciting (or become known as “The Most Boring Gardeners Ever” in school history). When the principal reveals a generous amount of grant money has been offered to continue the green program if the children succeed, the stakes rise.

No worries! Lexi and Jason are up to the task, assisted by their student council members. But as they formulate, organize and implement the plan for Beacon Academy’s first school garden, the kids are sidetracked by trouble, toils and trauma. Everyone has their OWN opinion on how to care for their plants, what should be done, and who should be doing it.

Hey–wait a minute. Who’s in charge around here? Find out in book 2 of the Wild Tales & Garden Thrills series…
