Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
"Mommy and I made a garden!...Can you guess what will grow?" A too-clever-by-half design gives this book a die-cut handle with cut-outs that reveal an ever-filling basket of produce, from green cabbage and purple turnips to orange carrots, yellow squash and red tomatoes-culminating in "vegetable soup for lunch!" An entry in the "Little Green Books" line of eco-friendly products, this proudly proclaims its provenance "from 100% recycled material." Unfortunately, the brown recycled stock makes a poor background for a color-concept book, and the resultant hues look murky and often do not provide enough contrast to tell colors apart, particularly when laid on top of one another by the die-cut patterns. While it's nice to see Asian-American characters, this well-meaning offering misses the mark. (1-2)
