GROW: How We Get Food from Our Garden is a book about a little girl and her grandfather gardening. They love their garden work and it shows as they take care of it through the seasons. Not only does this book show the steps taken in gardening in an colorful manner but also lists many foods to be grown and some of the insects and animals that help! Join these two expert gardeners as they show off the bounty that can be had with hard work and care!
This book is a nice book full of colors and pictures of the many things seen in a garden and even beyond a basic garden into the bushes and animal/insect life! It is not a very easy read, but it is a great book to challenge strong readers or those who need to branch out in their book selection. I thought some of it seemed a bit out of place as it doesn't go into detail about how they actually get the food from the garden as the title suggests. Rather, it has lots of lists of foods that can be grown and animals and insects that can help. Even in this, the author doesn't directly say that these are plants, herbs, or fruits that can be grown - it just has a list. This book would be an excellent companion for students learning about plants and life cycles.
