Illustrated Children’s Book & Seedbom Set
Finn’s Garden Friends: Nature-loving Finn’s life has been turned upside down by a move to the city. All he can see is dull, grey buildings. But Grandpa has a surprise in store: his allotment! Finn quickly realises that nature can be found in the city, and is amazed by the discovery of a hibernating hedgehog. With Grandpa’s gentle guidance, Finn learns how to care for the hedgehog family as well as a hungry fox. With birds and plants galore, this inspiring story – shows all the common species that can be found in towns and cities.
