Our Favorite Children’s Books


I’ve wanted to compile a list of children’s books for a long while now. Better late than never. lol. The list below highlights some of our favorites, they also all sit on my personal bookshelf. There were many that didn’t make the list, but my hope is that this will help you find new favorite treasures and expand your library. My opinion is you can never have too many books, especially when it comes to children! The top five or ten on the list are our most favorite, and I consider must haves.

What the Wind Told was, and still is, my favorite book as a child! Delightful images, the story follows a sick girl, Tossy, who has a daily conversation with the wind. Each day he tells her about a different window in the building across the street, and of course there is a plant family!!!

Uno’s Garden will not disappoint! It is a must have. The author is also the illustrator, and the images are unparalleled in beauty and complexity. The story teaches a lesson that everyone should know (math is also part of the lesson), people and cities grow, plant and animal habitat is lost, and eventually a balance is found. Buy this book!

The Curious Garden is another delightful book about a boy that stumbles into gardening and falls in love with it. Plants and tends to rouge gardens around the city. Fabulous book!

I could talk up each and every one of these books! Next time you’re in don’t hesitate to strike up a conversation with me! Click the link below, it’s a rather extensive list.

Thieneman’s Greenhaus is a family owned and operated garden center, located in beautiful Coxs Creek, KY.
Two years ago we took a leap of faith and decided to relocate our garden center after the family farm sold.
We found a picturesque 10 acre farm just south of Mt Washington and we started settling in. After not quite 2 years now, we still feel like we’re moving in. But we thankfully didn’t have to skip a season.
We had a great first year, and it looks like we’ll have a great second year. We are extremely thankful our loyal customers followed us, and a bunch of new people have found us too.
We have been specializing in herbs and perennials for almost 60 years. Our herb collection is probably the largest in the area. For 15 years now we have grown a large variety of heirloom tomatoes, peppers and veggies. And we have a great love for succulents as well, our collection is ever growing.Our goal is to be your favorite local garden center known for unusual and hard to find plants. We love our plants!!
