Praise

Starred Review, School Library Journal, February 1, 2012:
“The book will raise readers’ awareness of backyard food chains and encourage some students to try gardening themselves.”

Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, November 15, 2011:
“Zoehfeld’s latest is a wonderfully informative and enjoyable journey through one family’s backyard garden, from spring planting to fall harvest. Covering a dazzling array of topics, the author still manages to hold onto a story line that will draw readers in and allow them to experience both the good and the bad right along with narrator Alice. Sure to become a standard go-to for elementary teachers and gardeners alike, this is bound to spark some backyard explorations.”

Booklist, March 15, 2012:
“A natural for young gardeners, this picture book is also an appealing addition to classroom units on food chains.”

Publishers Weekly, January 9, 2012:
“Filled with humorous, cozy, and informative details. This intimate portrait of a single garden points to how all ecosystems are connected.”
