5.0 out of 5 stars Sensory story 18 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found this book 'rich pickings' for adapting to the sensory level of my class - all pupils with severe and complex learning difficulties. The cadence and rhyme of the story are good and there is so much opportunity for using it to introduce pupils to the objects, substances, creatures contained within it in a fun way.

I bought this book to read in my third grade Science class when we did the unit on plants. My students loved it. It is simple and the drawings are absolutely beautiful. Excellent book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book worth getting 13 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I'll share the review I wrote for The Home School Manual =======
Jack's Garden "This is the garden that Jack planted." The first double-spread illustration with these words shows Jack on the bare ground. Next, "This is the soil that made up the garden that Jack planted" and an underground picture of various creatures. The story repeats on each page spread adding a new line. This book is a winner. Excellent for reading practice and excellent for science with all the insects, birds, plants and so on illustrated and named.

5.0 out of 5 stars Light hearted educational picture book for kids of all ages 29 Jan 2003
By A. Ryan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Whoever coined the proverb, "a picture is worth a thousand words" could have been talking about Jack's Garden by Henry Cole.
This book is an excellent illustration of how, step by step, a garden is planted and what the seeds and living creatures do from that point on. We get to see above and below the soil as the garden progresses throughout the season. There are all the names of the plants and creatures labelled neatly next to each, on the main page and in the margins. Best of all, the classic children's poem about the house that Jack built is modified into a catchy text for each picture that makes understanding the magic of a little garden ecosystem effortless for kids as young as three years.
Top notch illustrations and a unique format set this picture book apart and earned it a permanent place in my collection. I only wish I had it in hardback!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent plant book! 23 April 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is outstanding! Far from being for just the pre-school/younger elementary set, it has a wealth of information which even older kids can benefit from. In addition to the text based on the House That Jack Built, it has labeled drawings of garden tools, insects in the soil, seeds, clouds,parts of plants, plants, butterflies, birds, and other insects. We (my kids ages 4 thru 10 and I) had fun pointing out the things we know and learning the ones we didn't. The illustrations are excellent- colorful and detailed. This book is a wonderful addition to homeschool unit studies on plants.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Book Is A Real Winner 7 Dec 2001
By Sunisurekick - Published on Amazon.com
I wish this book had been available for me when I was a young child. I'm delighted to be able to give it to my son, age 3. This book shows so many things to be found in a garden - from the first scene where Jack stands shovel in hand in an empty garden through the final page where Jack is surrounded by the beautiful outcome of his work to grow a beautiful garden. Along the way we learn the names of so many creatures and gardening items and see how a garden grows. Buy this book. It's a jewel.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Garden Treasure 7 Nov 2008
By Gardening Mom - Published on Amazon.com
This book is a wonderful gift for young gardeners or gardeners-to-be! The illustrations are gorgeous and detailed and an inspiration to all to get out in the garden and have a great time. Along with "Too Many Zucchini for Zachary Beany," I'd place it among my favorites for teaching love of gardening.
