Summary: A celebration of gardening and plants, told in rhyming text. Gardens can be anywhere: “An old empty lot/makes a good growing plot. But a pan or a bucket,/a pot or a shoe,/a bin or a tin, or a window will do.” You just need seeds, dirt, water and sunlight to grow all kinds of things. The landscapes shown are mostly urban, and the gardens range in size from small containers to large plots. If enough people in your community get inspired, the anywhere farm might just turn into an everywhere farm. 32 pages; ages 2-7.
Pros: Perfect for springtime, the rhymes are extra catchy and would be fun to read aloud. The gardeners come in all shapes, sizes, ages, and colors, and the gardens are equally diverse.
Cons: The whole gardening process is a bit oversimplified.
