Jeremy helped place pea seeds in the next row.
Suddenly he had an idea. "Oh, Mom, may I have some seeds for my own? May I plant a little garden and take care of it myself?"
"That's a good idea," Mom said. "You will need to work hard. You may have some seeds if you're willing to take good care of your own garden."
"I'll be a hard worker," Jeremy promised. "I'll pull the weeds and keep the ground hoed."
Excellent pencil drawings throughout the book make it appealing to young eyes.
Valerie and Charity Miller are sisters living in rural Honesdale, Pennsylvania. Their love of gardening and a desire to get children interested in gardening inspired them to write and illustrate Jeremy's Garden.
