  Being able to spend our days playing and working in the garden is something children and adults both enjoy. In this collection of poems (and riddles) readers will be reminded of all the things that happen in a garden that make it a special place to be. There are games to be played, creatures to watch, digging, planting, watering and harvesting to be done.
  Then there are all the wonderful things that a garden produces that can be eaten. There is corn and berries, and of course, there are lots and lots of zucchinis. 
  Twenty-four humorous poetic vignettes full of word play, loud noises, and interesting rhythms capture the many joys that a garden can bring. Readers will see that there are infinite possibilities when you are outdoors gardening, playing crocket or simply watching the world go by.
