«“This is the boldest, brassiest garden book to hit the market, and what a delight.”—School Library Journal, starred review
Lois Ehlert’s award-winning picture book about vegetable gardening for the very young is now available as a bilingual board book, written in both English and Spanish. The tools are pictured and labeled, as are the seeds (green bean, pea, corn, zucchini squash, and carrot). Father and child share the joys of planting, weeding, harvesting, washing, chopping, and cooking! “It was the best soup ever . . . ” Ehlert’s simple, colorful cut-paper-style illustrations are as kid-friendly as the big black type. A recipe for vegetable soup tops it all off! A delectable read-aloud for preschool gardeners and language students alike.
