Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A pigtailed little girl tells how she and her family work through the seasons on the garden. In PW's words: ``Stunningly evocative, the paintings are a remarkable combination of deep tones and glittering shades. This is a lovely, unpretentious story.'' (5-8)
Children's Literature - Mary Quattlebaum
An especially inspirational picture book for gardeners in March. The book begins in this way: "A garden after winter is a wonder to see. All brown stalks and black birds working. Quiet. Just brown and waiting for someone." Then comes the planting and the harvesting and the eating and the canning. The cycle begins again as winter sets in, the crows return, and the brown fields wait for spring.
