Reviews

PreS-Gr 1-This cheerful story is a pleasant introduction to planting and prepositions. When two children help plant a garden, they learn that some vegetables grow underground, some shoot up above it, and some grow on vines that twine around and around. And they all end up as lunch. The rhyming text is simple, but the words are well chosen. The colorful cartoon illustrations are humorous and lively, with lots of motion to keep readers turning the pages. Children will enjoy finding various insects on each page and talking about the roles they play in a garden. A good choice for introducing how things grow.-Mary Hazelton, Elementary Schools in Warren & Waldoboro, ME Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

A pleasant introduction to planting and prepositions.
--School Library Journal

The ink-and-watercolor illustrations offer plenty of details for children to explore...short verses create a quick pace and an upbeat tempo throughout.
--Booklist

An inviting introduction to the wonder of plants, food and gardening, this charming selection will be a favorite of teachers, students and home readers alike.
--Kirkus Reviews
