"We Are the Gardeners," by Joanna Gaines


Also available wherever books are sold.

"We Are the Gardeners" is a children's book, but it's more than that.

Joanna Gaines is releasing her 1st children's book, 'We are the Gardeners'

It's also the story of Gaines' family and their adventures cultivating a garden of their very own. In fact, her own kids — Drake, 13, and Duke, 9, Ella, 12, Emmie, 8, and Crew, 7 months — are credited as co-authors and their illustrated images, as well as those of blooms and greenery, grace the book's cover.

Take charge. Children crave limits, which help them understand and manage an often confusing world. Show your love by setting boundaries so your kids can explore and discover their passions safely.

“The garden has always been a place that inspires me," the Magnolia mama said in a press release from publisher Thomas Nelson. "There’s something about digging deep into fresh soil or watching new life burst from what was not long ago just a tiny seed that reinforces what a gift life is."

Joanna Gaines' new children's book is her latest project!


She added, "I think that’s part of why my kids have come to love spending time in the garden just as much as I do. It can be a great teacher, if we pause long enough to notice all there is to learn. Where every day can be a lesson in hard work, and sometimes even in failure, but where there’s also growth worth celebrating."

The whole family, including husband, father and fellow "Fixer Upper" Chip, can be seen in artist Julianna Swaney’s watercolor images that fill the pages.

This is the fourth book from Gaines, who co-wrote "The Magnolia Story" with Chip, in addition to penning "Homebody: A Guide to Creating Spaces You Never Want to Leave" and "Magnolia Table: A Collection of Recipes for Gathering."

But those interested in her upcoming book might want to make space for it in their yards, as well as on their bookshelves. As Laura Minchew, senior vice president and publisher of Tommy Nelson Children’s Books, noted in the release, "Families will delight in reading the story together, and create happy memories by starting their own gardens."

Eat at least one meal as a family each day. Sitting down at the table together is a relaxed way for everyone to connect - a time to share happy news, talk about the day, or tell a silly joke. It also helps your kids develop healthy eating habits.

"We Are the Gardeners" comes out March 26, but fans can already secure their copy by pre-ordering today .
