The Curious Garden Giveaway

Welcome to Dig It! Children's Gardening Resource blog. I started this blog in an effort to reach a new generation of gardeners and their parents, with a basic goal of inspiring children to love gardening and care for the earth. I thought, to mix it up a bit, I will periodically offer giveaways of great gardening products, books, and resources for grown-ups and their kids. I look forward to sharing my family's gardening projects and discoveries with you. My first giveaway is The Curious Garden by Peter Brown. Recommended for ages 4 to 8.

"One boy's quest for a greener world... one garden at a time. While out exploring one day, a little boy named Liam discovers a struggling garden and decides to take care of it. As time passes, the garden spreads throughout the dark, gray city, transforming it into a lush, green world. This is an enchanting tale with environmental themes and breathtaking illustrations that become more vibrant as the garden blooms. Red-headed Liam can also be spotted on every page, adding a clever seek-and-find element to this captivating picture book" -- Editorial Review @

  1. Hooray! Thank you for stopping by. Good luck in the giveaway. So far, you're in the lead ;o)

  2. I have found with my boys that starting from seed this year has grabbed their attention. As soon as my oldest saw the little sprouts coming up - he immediately started planning all the other things we should grow. I was in the process of growing a bread garden - herbs. He said, "Now, let's plant a salad garden, a pizza garden,......."
    Very fun!

  3. Kids and theme gardens seem to go hand-in-hand. For some reason it ups the fun-factor for them. It gives grown-ups some focus, too. I love your idea of a bread garden. Thank you for leaving a comment.
