Though Crew was too young, Gaines enlisted the older four kids to help chronicle their adventures in starting a family garden at their farm in Waco, Texas.
From funny failed endeavors to encountering obstacles like “bunnies that eat everything” Joanna told PEOPLE at the time that the book was, “Our way of sharing what the garden means to us, and the many adventures we’ve had along the way!”
Both We Are the Gardeners and The World Needs Who You Were Made to Be are illustrated by artist Julianna Swaney.
In addition to the two children’s books, Gaines has also authored Homebody: A Guide to Creating Spaces You Never Want to Leave; Magnolia Table: A Collection of Recipes for Gathering; Magnolia Table, Volume 2; and The Magnolia Story, which she co-wrote with her husband, Chip.
The World Needs Who You Were Made to Be will be released November 10, 2020, and is available now for preorder.
