by Danna Smith, Illustrated by Pati Aguilera, Performed by Holly Turton
A group of city friends work diligently together to grow herbs and vegetables in a rooftop garden. Set to a foot-tappin' original tune, this rhythmic, rhyming story will have kids singing enthusiastically about the six stages of plant growth. The story concludes with a summer harvest and feast that celebrates the gardeners' commitment. Includes singalong audio and video animation.
Target age: 3 to 7
