A school garden flourishes with the help of enthusiastic students in this idyllic poetry collection. . . . an enjoyable read, and one that will likely inspire young readers to grow their own gardens.
—School Library Journal
From the poetic mind of Allan Wolf comes a vast collection of poems fresh from the garden. Illustrated by Daniel Duncan, readers will go on a journey from germination to compost, learning along the way.
Well tuned to cultivate a deeper appreciation for both poetry and the pleasures and rewards of planting.
A bevy of delightful poems on every imaginable aspect of school gardening. . . The illustrator obviously absorbed each poem, because the pictures range from humorous to accurate biological renderings to lovely. Wolf has provided a teaching suggestion for each of the poems at the end of the book.
This story-in-verse of a school garden from beginning to delicious end captures the joy of growth and creation.
