    Hillary and Chelsea Clinton are giving their writing hands — and green thumbs — a workout, penning their first children's book together about gardening. The pair revealed details of their forthcoming book, "Grandma's Gardens," on Monday. The picture book is inspired by the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee's mother, Dorothy Rodham, and her love of gardening. Rodham, the book's publisher says, taught the Clintons that gardens are "magical places to learn, exciting spaces for discovery, quiet spots to spend time with family and beautiful areas to share stories and celebrate special occasions."
