In How Does My Garden Grow?, Gerda Muller's illustrations accurately depict the garden and its plants throughout spring, summer, fall and winter. This is a great introduction to gardening and where food comes from for children.
In the story, Sophie lives in the city, and her vegetables come from the supermarket. Then she goes to visit her grandparents in the countryside--and soon discovers how much there is to learn about how things grow.
Sophie helps her grandfather through the different seasons, finding out about mulching onions, eating flowers, weeding, bees, making salad, catching beetles, digging, earthing up, picking and composting.
When winter comes, Sophie has to go home--but her grandfather has one last surprise for her.
This is a wonderful book for children to learn about vegetable gardening through Sophie's eager and questioning eyes as she learns gardening activities expand through all seasons of the year!
