How Groundhog's Garden Grew by Lynne Cherry


Little Groundhog learns how to plant and tend to his own food garden through every season in this beautifully-illustrated, thoroughly researched picture book by naturalist Lynne Cherry.

Little Groundhog, in trouble for stealing from his friends' gardens, is taught by Squirrel to grow his very own. From seed-gathering to planting, harvesting, and eating home-grown fruits and vegetables, children join Little Groundhog in learning about the gardening process. At the end, Little Groundhog invites his animal friends to a Thanksgiving harvest feast.
Beautiful illustrations and thorough research on plants and insects make this sweet story an engrossing read, as well as a great picture-book introduction to how plants grow. Children and schools can follow Groundhog's lessons.

About the Author


Lynne Cherry is the author and/or illustrator of over 30 award-winning books for children. Her best-selling books such as The Great Kapok Tree, A River Ran Wild and The Armadillo From Amarillo teach children a respect for the earth. She lectures widely — and passionately — about how children can make a difference in a democratic society — if they feel strongly about something, they can change the world. She explains to educators how using nature to integrate curriculum makes a child's learning relevant. Lynne's books were inspired by her love of the natural world. She is also an avid canoeist and hiker.

Lynne is also an environmental activist whose books are used to launch campaigns to save land, clean up rivers, save forests, and help migratory birds. For example, her book A River Ran Wild is in most fourth-grade classroom reading anthologies and is used by teachers to launch projects to study local watersheds and to clean them up. Her book Flute's Journey: The Life of a Wood Thrush focused national media attention on conservation efforts to save the Belt Woods in Maryland when she was featured on CBS News Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood.

Lynne earned her B.A. at Tyler School of Art and her M.A. in History at Yale University. She has been artist-in-residence at the Smithsonian, the Geosciences department at both the University of Massachusetts and Cornell University, at the Marine Biological Lab, and at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, and at the Princeton Environmental Institute at Princeton University.
