Down the road from Woodlawn Avenue, on a street called Sunnyside, there's a garden patch grown by children who live in the neighbourhood. A sign on the garden's gate says: Children's Garden, WELCOME! That means: Come in, please. Listen, see, smell, touch-even taste! In rich prose and lush illustrations, this charming picture book shows children as urban farmers, exploring the sights, smells, sensations and tastes of growing their own food in a community garden. The story invites young readers to enjoy summer's bounty and the hands-on experience of tending and harvesting it, while the colourful illustrations depict a multicultural community of children learning about and enjoying a sustainable, local food system.
