Trivia to Know About This Book

  • What is your favorite thing about Badger’s Perfect Garden?

    I love how in the end Badger realized his garden didn’t need to be perfect, afterall. The jumble-tumble garden Mother Nature had made with the seeds he planted was beautiful.

  • What would you say is the primary message of Badger’s Perfect Garden?

    Letting go. Surrender. Beautiful things may follow.
