Reviews

"In her children's book debut, cookbook author/illustrator Gourley celebrates food, as cultivated on a farm and as used to cultivate family bonds. . . . Children whose experience of food supply is limited to grocery stores, school cafeterias and other eateries will relish this nostalgic view."--Publishers Weekly, STARRED review

"Gourley's luscious watercolors will have readers salivating as the berries plunk into pails and peach juice drips down chins."--School Library Journal, STARRED review

"A mouthwatering morsel that should come with the warning to eat before reading!"--Kirkus Reviews

"Gourley's watercolor illustrations are fluidly drawn and attractively designed, with emphasis on the colors and visual rhythms of the vegetation but plenty of eloquence in the portraits of the family. . . . A happy account with a useful emphasis on seasonality."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"This debut children's book by an artist and cookbook author celebrates the growing seasons and the irreplaceable pleasure of fresh food shared with family."--Booklist
