Description

From best-selling and beloved Caldecott Honoree Lois Ehlert comes a bright and beautiful classic about the simple pleasures of gardening.

Calling all budding gardeners! What would you like to grow today? Is it green beans, or peas? Corn or carrots? There's so much to learn in Lois Ehlert's colorful picture book about growing vegetables. First we must collect all the necessary tools, and don't forget the seeds. Then the magic happens: planting, weeding, harvesting, washing, chopping, cooking, and best of all--eating! There's even a recipe for vegetable soup! Ehlert’s simple cut-paper-style illustrations are perfect for even the tiniest growers. A wonderful introduction to gardening from a master storyteller.
