A charming introduction in words and photographs to growing food in the city.
The companion title to Up We Grow! is another informative and inspiring book about small-scale, local farming. This time the focus is on raising food in cities, where it can be grown anywhere - on windowsills, balconies, yards, boulevards and even rooftops.
Children follow the food, from planting and tending to harvesting and eating. Kids also read about sharing in community gardens and community kitchens and about the friendships and sense of caring that grow as people tend their city gardens.
Direct and informative, this should inspire many kids to test out how green their thumbs are.
Imbued with eco-friendly values throughout, this rousing read should inspire youngsters to dig in and start planting.
... the simple, straightforward words and candid images of diverse gardeners young and old offer a rare introduction to an exciting movement and spotlight how urban agriculture helps build communities.
