We sowed the seeds for this book last year and I’m thrill to say it’s ready to bloom on May 16th! It was a joy to work with the team at Barefoot Books. Their vision along with illustrator, Pati Aguilera, and singer Holly Turton were just the right mix for this joyful singalong! Readers can scan the QR code on the back cover for the audio and video. “Prepare the food and take a seat. Pass a plate and let’s all eat. A garden feast! Oh, what a treat!” “Yum, garden! Yum, garden! Yum, yum, yum!”
A group of city friends work diligently together to grow herbs and vegetables in a rooftop garden. Set to a foot-tappin’ original tune, this rhythmic, rhyming story will have kids singing enthusiastically about the six stages of plant growth. The story concludes with a summer harvest and feast that celebrates the gardeners’ commitment. Includes singalong audio and video animation.
Praise for Rooftop Garden
“A community grows plants to the tune of an original song . . . The backmatter includes a musical score for the song, tips to start a garden, and a primer on the stages of plant growth. With a neat musical twist, this picture book grows on you” – Kirkus Reviews
