Show Me The Green

Show Me the Green book cover

Show Me The Green is a new children’s book by DS Venetta that teaches gardening in a “novel” way.  It is intended for a middle-grade audience but can be enjoyed by a much wider age group.

The story revolves around a sister-brother team, Lexi and Jason Williams, who are determined to win the First Annual Garden Contest sponsored by the local Farmer’s Market.

In the process, we learn about such gardening subjects as: the importance of planting certain vegetables at certain times of year, the importance of fertilizers, worm poop, rotating crops, trellises, beneficial insects, pollination and much, much more.

The color illustrations by Mike Motz are beautifully rendered and add context to the tale.

Book extras include a glossary of garden terms used in the book and some mouth watering recipes.
