Grow! How We Get Food From Our Garden is a neat little children's book that teaches kids all about the different types of food (and herbs and flowers) you can grow. From turnips to tomatoes, roses to radishes, and everything in between. There's potential for children to learn about new things within these pages. There are also tips for starting a garden if that is something young readers might be interested in doing.
