Nina Soni, Master of the Garden

by Kashmira Sheth
illustrated by Jenn Kocsmiersky

Lovable Indian-American girl Nina Soni returns in the third installment of this award-winning middle grade chapter book series from Own Voices author Kashmira Sheth.

It’s Take Your Child to Work Day, and Nina, Kavita, and Jay are all going to work with Mom, a landscape architect, to learn how to start a garden. Naturally that’s not enough for Nina, who quickly develops big plans for a business selling the vegetables she plans to grow. But her plans don’t include managing the problems that inevitably arise, including rabbits, slugs, mosquitos, and more!

Readers are sure to relate to Sheth’s endearing Nina Soni, her family and friends, and her slightly scatter-brained efforts to manage her life with lists, definitions, and real-life math problems. A great read for STEAM enthusiasts!

Also available:
Nina Soni, Former Best Friend
Nina Soni, Sister Fixer
