Praise for Grandma Lisa's Humming, Buzzing, Chirping Garden
Caring for the environment starts at home and ideally begins at a very young age, lasting for a lifetime. Grandma Lisa’s Humming, Buzzing, Chirping Garden is a beautiful way to start this conversation with children about the environment. The book uses “Grandma Lisa” (the author) to introduce kids to the wonder, complexity and importance of nature, showing how fun family garden projects can help support wildlife. Many adults may learn a thing or two while reading this book with their kids (why butterfly bush is not a good plant choice, what a food web is, and much more). Pick up a copy and help empower the next generation to become “responsible caretakers of the Earth” just like Grandma Lisa.
