"An inviting introduction to the wonder of plants, food, and gardening. . . . Will be a favorite of teachers, students, and home readers alike." — Kirkus Reviews

Los pimientos crecen hacia arriba.

Las papas crecen hacia abajo.

Y alrededor, las calabazas se enredan, se enredan y se enredan.

De semillas que caen al suelo hasta el maíz que parece reventar, ¡todo en este huerto está en movimiento!

From seeds dropping into soil to corn bursting from its stalks, from children chasing butterflies to ants burrowing underground, everything in this vibrant Spanish language picture book pulses with life— in all directions! Sprightly illustrations set the mood for a rhythmic text that follows nature’s course to a final feast of backyard bounty.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ramirose I. Attebury
This cute, repetitive text will introduce young children to a wide variety of vegetables through gardening. Some grow way up above the ground: corn, bell peppers, broccoli, beans, okra; some grow deep in the dirt: carrots, potatoes, beets, and onions. Others still emerge in a tangle of vines: pumpkins, tomatoes, and cucumbers. Regardless of how they grow, the care, watering, and patience required will pay off in the long run. The final scene of the book shows a man and two children who have been helping him in the garden enjoying a picnic extravaganza including soup, sandwiches, salad, and pumpkin pie, all courtesy of the garden. Cute and colorful line drawings show each of the vegetables either growing up or down, always surrounded by friendly-looking little insects, worms, and a crow, as well as the man and two children responsible for their cultivation. This book would make a nice addition to lessons about health, food, or gardening. It is also an enjoyable read that would be right at home in any school or public library with a Spanish-speaking population or Spanish language section. Reviewer: Ramirose I. Attebury; Ages 2 to 5.
