Laugh out loud as Ragweed takes on the tennis elite at the country club or attempts to rearrange their perfectly cut lawns.
Always one to learn new things, this young freckled face gal with the unruly blonde hair, builds a float, rides a horse and grows a garden - always getting into unintentional trouble and conning her friends to partake. Each task done with her own unique views of the world.
Ragweed Grows a Garden -
I would say this is a perfect read for junior high children who are studying tall tales. I like how, with each retelling, the reason for Ragweed's sneezes changes a little.
We are homeschooling and I am sure my children will enjoy discussing these stories when they get older. There are times when I disagree with Ragweed's behavior (i.e. the school uniform incident) and it is this kind of situation in literature that gets young minds thinking.
Kudos to Andy Atkins for the pretty illustrations. :-)
My rating: 4.75 stars
She currently lives with her husband in Montana and California where on clear days you can find her fishing, hunting or hiking.
She and Ragweed hope you will enjoy each tale in this book as much as Ragweed enjoyed living the adventures.
