KIRKUS REVIEW

The charming young gift of Linnea in Monet's Garden shares her enthusiasm for plants and shows how to grow windowsill varieties in pots, jars, plastic lids, peat pellets, and planters. Linnea plants seeds and pits, bulbs, and cuttings; prunes her avocado; gives advice on watering, fertilizer and bugs; and shares plant games and contests (which grows faster?). Mr. Bloom, an elderly friend, answers the tougher questions: How does the water cycle work, what do plants eat, where do seeds come from, and what to plants need to live? Lively line drawings in black and green enhance the text. An attractive title for urban plant lovers.
