Overview

Watch spring pop up colorfully in your garden! With this pop-up and pull-tab book, kids can make golden blossoms open wide, butterflies and honeybees buzz from flower to flower, and tender vegetables ripen and grow tall. At the same time, they'll learn how the warm sunshine makes seeds germinate in the dark, damp soil; how roots grow down while shoots grow up; how insects find food in flowers and spread pollen all around; and how a garden looks different in every season of the year. The final spread features a glorious garden in full bloom—bursting with tabs to pull and small flaps to lift. 12 pages (all in color), 8 X 8 1/2.

Kirkus Reviews
Burns and Apperley's garden is a happy and busy place. In the spring, rabbits hop about, apple trees are in bloom, tulips pop out of the ground, seedlings start to sprout. Summer brings more flowers and a host of cartoony butterflies, bees, spiders, and a vegetable garden that is becoming copious. A final pop-up page shows a vegetable garden, flower garden, and insects in profusion. Onlookers can pull tabs to make beans climb the pole or turn a wheel to make butterflies and bees circle a magenta bloom, even though the engineering feels a little fragile. The book provides a real sense of activity, change, and growth as the seasons progress and the gardens mature. Snippets of botany, appearing in textual asides, can be highlighted or ignored, depending on audience age and interest. (Picture book. 3-6) .
