Today I'm shareing a wonderful childrens book that I recently bought for my grandchildren to read, for more show-n-tell be sure to visit

I just discovered that Jan Karon writes childrens books, Jan Karon is the author of the best selling Mitford Years book series, her books draw you into the story, once you start it's hard to put it down, here is an insert from the front page

I hope your grandchildren enjoy the new book. Do you put an inscription on the inside when you gift them with a new book? My dad has always done that and my girls love reading what he wrote. I know that it will forever be a memory for them and they'll cherish it forever.

I love the idea of sharing a garden love story with grandchildren:)
Thank you for sharing today:)


I have read all the Mitford series and loved every one of them.. She is a gifted story teller. This is my kind of a read and I'm sure the grandchildren will love it . Keep up the work with the grandchildren. You never know where it will all lead to.. Just look at my Missy and where she is today..

Our grandchildren love reading and there is always time set aside for reading.
Guess I'm not familiar with her but will check her out...I'm going to ask our daughter in-law if they have any books of hers.

as you all know, I love to read , when I can lol
This book is an addition to my library, I turned one of my bedrooms into a library a few years ago & my grand daughters love to be in there, sometimes I think thats' the only reason they want to spend the night LOL but I'm glad I can pass on a passion for reading
