Overview


"The book provides a healthy dose of completely digestible information on growing and nurturing living things; it’s also a zesty introduction to vivid, abstract art." –Publishers Weekly, of Growing Vegetable Soup

Color explodes from Ehlert’s bold, beautiful cut-paper collages like seeds from an over-ripe pod. Three gift-sized editions of her beloved hardcover picture books—Eating the Alphabet (with a glossary of fruits and vegetables), Planting a Rainbow (a concept book about colors and different flowers), and Growing Vegetable Soup (includes a recipe!)—are packaged in a lovely slipcase with a 16" x 22" flower-garden poster. It’s a springtime extravaganza!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for EATING THE ALPHABET:
 
"Ehlert's eye-catching alphabet book splashes exuberant colors across each page. Cut shapes drenched in assorted hues are assembled into brilliant fruits and vegetables, with each page becoming an eclectic display of produce that corresponds to a letter of the alphabet." Booklist STARRED REVIEW
 
"The watercolor illustrations...seem to grow off the page in bursts of health and freshness as they capture the very essence of each food." The Horn Book
 
Praise for PLANTING A RAINBOW:
 
"A graphic celebration of planting a glorious flower garden. Bulbs planted in the fall and seeds and seedlings set out in the spring mature into a riot of color....The book's simple concept is effectively executed; this begs to be shared with youngsters...." Booklist
 
Praise for GROWING VEGETABLE SOUP:
 
"This is the boldest, brassiest garden book to hit the market, and what a delight." School Library Journal STARRED REVIEW
