IN A GARDEN
“McCanna’s superb scansion never misses…Like its subject: full of bustling life yet peaceful.” —Kirkus Reviews
Acclaimed author Tim McCanna celebrates gardens, nature, and all sorts of critters in this delightful and vibrant read-aloud picture book.
In the earth
a single seed
sits beside a millipede
worms and termites
dig and toil
moving through the garden soil
How does a garden grow? Follow along from seed to sprout to bud to flower as a garden blooms. Worms, ladybugs, millipedes, and more help a garden grow each season. Tim McCanna’s gorgeous, rhyming text, combined with Aimée Sicuro’s stunning illustrations make this charming picture book as informative as it is fun to read aloud.
Bonus backmatter features tons of cool facts about ecosystems and the symbiosis between plants and bugs.
