Publisher's Summary

In the number one New York Times best seller We Are the Gardeners, Joanna Gaines and the kids chronicle the adventures of starting their own family garden. From their failed endeavors, obstacles to overcome (bunnies that eat everything), and all of the knowledge they gain along the way, the Gaines family shares how they learned to grow a happy, successful garden.

We Are the Gardeners is a whimsical audiobook perfect for:

  • Ages four to eight
  • Parents, libraries, classroom story times, and discussions focusing on springtime and gardening
  • Households that enjoy watching HGTV's Fixer Upper
  • Young children and families interested in gardening and plants

After listening, children will learn:

  • Trying something new isn't always easy, but the hardest work often yields the greatest reward
  • The basic steps and process of starting a garden
  • The importance of patience and how it is possible to learn from your mistakes

You and your children will learn all about the Gaines family's story of becoming gardeners in Joanna's first children's book - starting with the first little fern Chip bought for Jo. Over the years, the family's love for gardening has blossomed into what is now a beautiful, bustling garden.

Critic Reviews

"What better way to learn about the joys of gardening than to hear members of a family sharing their experience? Meet the Gaineses, who had no experience with growing things when they started with 'Fern Number One' and then moved on to a houseful, and then to a 'yardful' of plants. Along the way, this family shares both the science and practicality of gardening; for example, overhydration equals 'too many drinks for a little plant.' As listeners learn the basics of gardening, exuberance and enthusiasm shine in the narrators. The pacing and inflection are varied as the production bounces quickly from speaker to speaker. Meet garden heroes (ladybugs) and villains (aphids), composters (worms) and bullies (weeds), and ponder sage tips ('trying and failing and trying again')." (A.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award 2019)

Simple yet motivating

Thank you Gaines family! I have had several plants die on me because I’ve either watered them too much, or too little and I convinced myself I would never be able to have nice plants or a garden for that matter. But your lesson with the fern has reminded me to never give up! I will try again and think of your family’s gardening story. Thank you! Cute book
