Out-of-doors season has arrived and one of the joys of the warm weather days is planting a garden - vegetables, fruits, or flowers. And they all require soil. And they all require digging.

It's what is in the soil plus sun and rain that makes the garden and all it's loveliness grow. In the delightfully entertaining and educational book, The Soil in Jackie's Garden, young Jackie learns all about how she can enrich the soil and what it takes to get the soil to be productive - including critters that wiggle and squirm down deep in the dark moist dirt.

This charming book displays vertically (a bit different from regular printings) and that just seems to help visualize how it takes going deep down for soil to be enriched and effective. Young readers will be enticed to get a shovel, make a compost pile, dig a garden, find an earth worm, and be in absolute awe when they see their seeds sprout and seedlings grow to fruition.

Feeding Minds Press accurately presents factual knowledge in a format that children can understand. Children learn that there is more than a visit to the grocery store to putting a meal on the table. It takes soil. It takes digging. It takes attention to our environment.

I highly recommend this book for families and libraries.

Great story, about a side of Lincoln that is little remembered.

The art work in this book is great, and unusual for a children’s book. But that is the best part. This is a basic history of Abe Lincoln. The subtitle is “Abraham Lincoln’s Agricultural Legacy” but much of this is not about agriculture. Plus the author has added in these action works like “Twack”, “swish”, “thwump” that seem very out of place. This reader who lives in the “Land of Lincoln” would not add this book to their collection.
