Through ten short and magical stories, the reader finds that a vegetable garden is like a village, with characters, families and unique stories to tell.

The format of this book encourages engaging and revealing conversations between educator or parent and child. A series of questions at the end of each of 10 stories deal with the fundamentals of life and growing up.

Guaranteed to engage, The Hidden Garden offers an intimate way to discuss outcomes, experiences and values among children and their storytellers. The stories, though simple, are deceptively powerful and thought-provoking. After each story the springboard for exchanging ideas and developing discernment and awareness is a wonderful tool for growth.
