Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"This companion to Up We Grow! moves from the farm to the fire escape as it explores ways that gardeners are growing food in community gardens, on rooftops, and in backyards. Harris contributes numerous photos of children getting in on the action — watering plants, tilling soil, and enjoying the (literal) fruits of their labor. Emphasizing the communal aspects of urban farming, Hodge offers tips (such as how to grow a 'pizza garden') and questions for readers: 'Do you have a patch of earth or container you can turn into a garden?' Direct and informative, this should inspire many kids to test out how green their thumbs are. Ages 4 — 7. (Feb.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
