About the Author

 


Praise For It's Our Garden: From Seeds to Harvest in a School Garden

The documentary-style narrative and uplifting photos put the joy of kinship, outdoor work, and growing food within reach of readers.
—Publishers Weekly

This fun and inspiring season-by-season description of a school gardening project could encourage others to repeat this extraordinary experience.
—School Library Journal

The clearly written text works seamlessly with the two kinds of color illustrations: Ancona’s many effective photos record the garden experience over the course of the growing season, while the children’s drawings (in crayon or marker) offer a fresh counterpoint to his engaging photos. An inviting introduction to school gardens.
—Booklist

With the growing interest in school gardens, this is a timely book. Listed resources, both books and websites, give more information. The full-color photographs are well-done, and illustrations drawn by students add further interest and visual appeal.
—Library Media Connection

Like these children and adults working in harmony with the earth’s resources, Ancona’s words and visuals exist in a beautiful balance.
