Frances Lincoln are delighted to reissue Sarah Garland's classic picture book series featuring a warm and very down-to-earth family as they go about their daily life. Doing the Garden follows the family as they go to the garden centre, choose their flowers and seeds and even a tree. They come home, work together in the garden and are finished in time for tea.

SARAH GARLAND is a much-loved author and illustrator who has published more than 50 books. The daughter of a publisher and illustrator, she trained as a typographer at the London College of Printing. Her books for Frances Lincoln include the favourite preschool Going and Doing series, the bestselling Eddie series and Azzi in Between, which was winner of the first Little Rebels Book Award in 2013 and was also chosen as an IBBY Honour Book and as an Outstanding International Book by USBBY. Sarah and her husband, the artist David Garland, have four children and five grandchildren, and live in Gloucestershire.

Great fun and ideal for reading aloud.

Bath Chronicle

Warm and realistic illustrations convey the details of a day of gardening. Mum loads two toddlers into the pram and off they set to the garden centre. They buy seeds and plants and even a tree! After staggering home, they have all the fun of digging, sowing, and planting. What a busy day and how delightfully it ends with everyone flopped exhausted on the kitchen floor.

Book Ahead 0-7

Recommended reading.

Child Care

A charming book, exploring the gardening exploits of an ordinary family. The pictures are charming, full of detail that offers such rich potential for discussion.
