'If your children think they would like to have a vegetable garden this spring, How Does My Garden Grow?, written and illustrated by Gerda Muller, shows how gardening can be an adventure with feasts to behold as vegetables mature and reach edible size. The story is accompanied and bordered by all sorts of instructive, labeled drawings and lists of all things gardening, very entertaining and informative.'

'This warm story of a child's summer at her grandparents' French country farm lovingly describes basic gardening techniques. As Sophie and Granddad John work together, city girl Sophie learns how to prepare a plot and then plants seeds, waters them, and watches the seedlings grow into productive plants... Fresh colours abound in the illustrations of Sophie, her grandparents, and her new friends. Creatures important to gardeners - birds, butterflies, bees, rabbits, bats, moles, worms, slugs, snails, and grubs - are beautifully pictured, as are the vegetables harvested throughout the summer... [a] combination of engaging story and gardening information will delight and teach readers.'

'It's a wonderful book which my daughter loved and started reading immediately. It's colourful and educational, yet written in a very simple and easy to understand language. It is split in a few sections, each one offering interesting advice about planting your own garden and caring for it. The story is simple and a lot of kids could project themselves into the book character, Sophie.'
