The Little Gardener by Emily Hughes, book cover

This is my garden,
(extend palm of hand facing up)
I’ll rake it with care,
(rake palm with 3 fingers of the other hand)
And then some flower seeds,
(plant pretend seeds on palm)
I’ll plant there.
The sun will shine,
(circular action with other hand)
And the rain will fall,
(fingers flutter down)
And my garden will blossom,
And grow straight and tall.
(cup hands and ‘grow’ fingers upwards like flowers)
