Welcome to the Childrens Garden--a beautiful place to connect with nature and the food cycle! Illustrated with colorful paintings, this charming picture book features a diverse group of children connecting to food through hands-on outdoor activity.
Down the road from Woodlawn Avenue, on a street called Sunnyside, theres a garden patch grown by children who live in the neighborhood. A sign on the gardens gate says: Childrens Garden, WELCOME! That means: Come in, please. Listen, see, smell, touch--even taste!
In rich prose and lush illustrations, this charming picture book shows children as urban farmers, exploring the sights, smells, sensations, and tastes of growing their own food in a community garden. The story invites young readers to enjoy summers bounty and the hands-on experience of tending and harvesting it, while the colorful illustrations depict a multicultural community of children learning about and enjoying a sustainable, local food system.
