Review Childrens Book: It's Our Garden: From Seeds to Harvest in a School Garden by George Ancona

Want to grow what you eat and eat what you grow? Visit this lively, flourishing school-andcommunity garden and be inspired to cultivate your own.

At an elementary school in Santa Fe, the bell rings for recess and kids fly out the door to check what’s happening in their garden. As the seasons turn, everyone has a part to play in making the garden flourish. From choosing and planting seeds in the spring to releasing butterflies in the summer to harvesting in the fall to protecting the beds for the winter. Even the wiggling worms have a job to do in the compost pile! On special afternoons and weekends, neighborhood folks gather to help out and savor the bounty (fresh toppings for homemade pizza, anyone?). Part celebration, part simple how-to, this close-up look at a vibrant garden and its enthusiastic gardeners is blooming with photos that will have readers ready to roll up their sleeves and dig in.
This is a great book for beginner gardeners. It teaches all about starting a garden. It tells the story of teachers and students coming together to grow a garden. The story is easy to follow and easy to read. The pictures are very detailed and clear. I recommend this book to any young child who loves the outdoors. Great book to donate to an elementary class. Highly recommend.
