We have a small vegetable garden, and my now 4 year old has loved this book for two years - the pictures show the different seeds, how the plants look from tiny seedlings to the different shapes of the leaves, the flowers that the plants make, and the colors of the vegetables. A nice book to show children that vegetables arent manufactured in the supermarket.

Super simple-easy read aloud, growing vegetabes to then make soup.

A child and his/her father grow the ingredients for vegetable soup. The child describes each step, and everything in the book is labeled, like tools and plants.The book would be a great way to begin a class garden and possibly a great pairing with "Seedfolks" by Paul Fleischman.

Great book for preschool and kindergarten age children. It helps them to identify the process of growing vegetables. It is very colorful and fun to read.

Vivid colors make this gardening story pop.

This is a good book to teach the children how to plant and the way to make plants grow and give their fruits.

In this book a variety of vegetables are planted from seeds or sprouts and "grow" on the pages. Very simplistic pictures show children the plants starting with seeds, going to sprouts, and finally becoming vegetables. At the back of the book is a recipe for vegetable soup.

After reading all the rave reviews for this book, I was so excited to get it. Unfortunately, I don't know what most of the parents are on who wrote previous reviews - but this book was nothing like what the other people described. I was so dissapointed. They described how great the illustrations were of the vegetables - they aren't. Unless you consider solid masses of basic shapes and only ONE color a great illustration. I was so disappointed because we had just started a garden with vegetables and I thought this would be the perfect supplementary book for my one year old daughter to read to understand what was going on. This is a good book for teaching colors to your children, but really nothing more - even the gardening tools that are in the book are nothing but simple solid colored drawings that my daughter now at 14 months could easily draw. Children's minds need more than what this book can provide. The story is not engaging enough for her - the pictures don't hold her attention - and and while I haven't tried the recipe yet, it does sound tasty. All in all, my daughter does not like this book - and I really don't either.
