Peachtree. (Where in the Garden?: Bk. 2). Mar. 2022. 32p. Tr $16.99. ISBN 9781682631669.
Gr 1-3–A charming, educational book about the plants that can grow in their gardens. Miguel needs to find sunflowers for his garden party. Readers learn what is unique about sunflowers and then follow Miguel around the community garden to find one. He goes through several plants that have similarities; in each case, he learns about a different one, and the quest continues. Many animal friends join him, and it happily leads to success, just in time for the garden party. Brown-Wood’s words coupled with Hardy’s illustrations create a colorful book for kids that centers on a Latinx child; not only is the book informative in the survey of a variety of plants children will find, but it offers further enticement in the form of a garden salad.
VERDICT Perfect for introducing kids to nature and a taste of the garden-to-table experience. A great book for the green shelves.
