i check it out every spring. and am a bit ashamed to admit that it taught me quite a bit about gardening.
the book opens with a gopher stealing vegetables from other people's gardens. a wise squirrel instructs him on making his own garden. slowly and beautifully, a garden emerges for the little gopher. he is amazed.
the book follows each step with lovely illustrations.
borders show seeds, bugs that help plants grow, and the process of growth for several vegetables.
and when gopher harvests his garden, he hosts a feast with all his garden friends.
a good book, gang. for your kids. and for you too.
