How Does My Garden Grow by Gerda Muller is warm story of a child's summer at her grandparents' French country farm that lovingly describes basic gardening techniques.
As Sophie and Granddad John work together, city girl Sophie learns how to prepare a plot and then plants seeds, waters them, and watches the seedlings grow into productive plants.
Fresh colours abound in the illustrations of Sophie, her grandparents, and her new friends. Creatures important to gardeners – birds, butterflies, bees, rabbits, bats, moles, worms, slugs, snails, and grubs – are beautifully pictured, as are the vegetables harvested throughout the summer.
A combination of engaging story and gardening information will delight and teach readers.
Gerda Muller's characterful illustrations accurately depict the garden and its plants through spring, summer, fall and winter
