Read an Excerpt

"Class, the best part about having a garden is eating what we've grown!" said Sylvia's teacher.
So the class nibbled on fresh lettuce.
They bit into far red radishes.
And everyone munched on bright green spinach leaves.
Everyone except Sylvia.

Sylvia sniffed the spinach. It didn't smell bad.
Then Sylvia stuck out her tongue. Licked. It didn't taste bad.
Finally Sylvia opened her mouth and bit that spinach leaf in half.
"Not bad," said a very surprised Sylvia.
