Say hello to the last (but certainly not least) of the Spring 2017 releases from Sasquatch Books and Little Bigfoot! “Hot off the Press” will be taking a short break for the summer, and these new titles will help you spend your own summer learning and exploring. Enjoy some local produce, bask in the weirdness of the natural world, and stay tuned—our Fall 2017 season is just around the corner.
Based on Tilth Alliance’s real children’s garden in Seattle, this charming picture book features a diverse group of children connecting to food through hands-on outdoor activity. The story invites young readers to enjoy summer’s bounty and the hands-on experience of tending and harvesting a garden.
“This charming look at a cooperative project outdoors in fresh air and sunshine captures the appeal of gardening and may inspire children to plant some seeds of their own.”
—Kirkus Reviews, starred review
“The lyrical text and sun-drenched illustrations combine storytelling with horticultural basics. . . . Inviting and inspiring, this luminous volume provides a hands-on paean to community gardening.”
—School Library Journal
