With lilting charm and cartloads of drollery, this high-spirited garden book will make children eager for a patch of soil, a packet of seeds, and the pleasure of watching things grow. As the seasons change, Isabel Wilner weaves an orderly story around the letters of the alphabet. The activity is narrated in rhythmic, compact couplets that set forth the stages and bounty of a luxuriant garden in alphabetic array. Full-color illustrations.
