Full of poems and text, this book is an easy way to get children interested in planting their own school garden. Definite read for a science/nutrition class, and if possible, pair it with planting your own school garden. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0983661502, Hardcover)

New city. New school. Michael is feeling all alone—until he discovers the school garden! There’s so many ways to learn, and so much work to do. Taste a leaf? Mmm, nice and tangy hot. Dig for bugs? “Roly-poly!” he yells. But the garden is much more than activities outdoors: making school garden stone soup, writing Found Poems and solving garden riddles, getting involved in community projects such as Harvest Day, food bank donations, and spring plant sales. Each season creates a new way to learn, explore, discover and make friends.

School librarian and gardener Rick Swann, in his picture book debut, describes the wonder of connecting with nature and the joy of growing and eating one’s own harvest. Award-winning artist Christy Hale captures the brilliant color of the season and the harvest. This is the perfect book to read alone, as well as share in the classroom or with the entire family.

A story about children working in the school garden teaches facts about the growth cycle, gardening, food supply, and working together. Includes other resources for those interested in starting a school garden.
