It's definitely worth adding to the series for a fall story.
"O Bella Luna, smile on me,
And on the seeds I sow,
And let the moonbeams shine from thee,
To make my garden really grow."
It was Big Anthony's job so spread the compost and manure and so he "put a clothespin on his nose and did his job." It was time to plant and everyone was excited, but when Bambolona started bossing Big Anthony around because he didn't plant straight rows he got upset and decided to plant his own secret garden. He wasn't as careful and when it started to grow it was a big mess. At the end of the harvest Strega Nona carefully filled her rafters and root cellar with the bounty. All of a sudden her doorstep was full of vegetables. Many of the gardens did not produce that year and when she took the extra to the Sisters at the convent they were very pleased, but who was bringing all those vegetables?
This lovely book was a gentle lesson book on how to treat the environment well and grow a "perfect" little garden.Read more ›
