Nonfiction. This beautiful book tells the story of growing a family garden and the struggles that some with it. It encourages kids to try thing for themselves.

I love the information this book provides at the end of the story and its potential to spark research projects.

While the picture book side of this story is a fun, simple way of showing how everything in an ecosystem is connected, the part of this book I love the most is at the end. At the conclusion of the book the author gives information on acorns and what they produce and how the readers can help protect acorns.

Short, plainly explained, reasonably interesting. There‘s quite a bit of dry scientific terminology, but the author—rather successfully—balances it with humor.

(Although, as always, there had to be a cringy—and carelessly inaccurate—line in there on women‘s periods synchronizing, and just... Mr. plant scientist, either just stick to plants, or double-check your data.)

3.0/5

eol Some fun plant facts, rephrased:

Plants keep their inner time the same way we do—so go ahead, and call that philodendron your evolutional daddy.

A fruit can smell when its neighbor is ripe.

Plants take aspirin when they're sick.

You can kill your favorite plant if you pet it too much.

Plants remember trauma.

Zucchinis like classical music but hate rock—allegedly.

(Or rather—and much more probably—plants are deaf.)

This book was a cute true story about how gardening and beautiful plants can create a bond between family members. It also teaches about the life cycle of plants, so it is both entertaining and educational for children.
