Review quote

..".poetic and evocative..." --School Library Journal

"From its handsome title-page introduction of fourteen vegetable-garden plants to the useful facts and tips arrayed on seed packets on its last page, this is an inspiring celebration of planning, growing, and enjoying the results of a community garden." --Horn Book Magazine

..".[a] fresh celebration of gardening as food for both body and soul." --Kirkus

..".a quiet yet engaging presentation that is sure to inspire gardening attempts by young readers. The generous size of the book and the illustrations also make this a good choice for small-group sharing." --Booklist

"Christensen's (The Princess of Borscht) sturdy, wood engraving-style illustrations show carrots, pumpkins, chard, and beans that look good enough to eat..." --Publishers Weekly
