What's in the Garden?
Jo Lodge. Little Simon, $6.99 (12pp) ISBN 978-0-689-86733-0
A die-cut watering can that doubles as a book teaches youngsters how plants grow from seeds in What's in the Garden? by Jo Lodge. The cover, shaped as a half cylinder with a plastic window, lets readers peek at the tiny creatures (a snail, ladybug, etc.) inside. As seeds are planted, watered and begin to grow, Butterfly asks its friends about each of these steps. A pop-up spread of flowers with Butterfly in their midst ends this uniquely packaged book.
