Jack’s Garden by Henry Cole

We stumbled upon this book at the library. It is a cumulative tale like The House that Jack Built, but this book talks about the soil and the seeds and the rain and the seedlings and the plants and on and on and on until Jack has a garden. I am a sucker for cumulative tales because the kids can begin to “read” the story with you fairly quickly, but the thing I love most about this book are the illustrations. There is so much to talk about and see on each page. For those kids who love to look at the pictures while mom and dad are reading, this one is a winner.
