Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1-- The best aspects of a vegetable garden jump out from the brilliant illustrations of this atmospheric book. Thick pen-and-ink lines enclose rich watercolors to create a stained-glass effect. The style is stolid and earthy to match the theme: mother, father, son, daughter, and dog are shown working diligently on this satisfying project. The text becomes a rhyme, with a few words in large type on each double-page spread: "Spade, rake, hoe/ Seeds in a row." Weeding is mentioned, but no pests are seen except the rabbit munching on a head of cabbage. This garden is not described chronologically, so that the pea plants come after the pumpkins. Never mind: the purpose here is not to give logical information but rather to provide scenes of pleasure and the bright goodness and beauty of tomatoes, melons, and other wonders of a successful vegetable plot. --Carolyn Jenks, formerly at Oyster River Elementary School, Durham, NH

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By garden girl on June 14, 2005
Format: Paperback
My 4 year old son loves this book! He memorized most of it which helped him learn what we needed to do next in the garden. Then, we couldn't remember the next line. We went back to the library without title or author and just what we memorized. THe librarian found it! Hurray!

I would have easily given it five stars but the illustrations aren't my favorite.

When I see all the other Douglas FLorian book I have trouble keeping from buying LOTS!
