Jessica’s Garden is a wonderful children’s story about the need every child has to go outside and play … and get dirty!
Jessica wants so badly to play in the garden and get dirty like Katie, the little girl next door, but Jessica’s mummy doesn’t want her little girl to ruin her pretty clothes. Daddy tries to console Jessica, but everything changes when Nanny comes to visit.
Nanny soon sees to it that Jessica has lovely new play clothes as well as seeds to plant in her garden. Now Jessica can see how flowers and veggies grow, and she can enjoy herself with Katie and not worry about her clothes.
