"Straightforward text and clear, well-labeled, pleasing illustrations make this a useful introduction to botany."--The Horn Book

"In a celebration of growing (and eating) fresh vegetables and fruit, Rockwell's glossy digital artwork depicts upbreat children plucking apples, picking tomatoes, planting seeds, and watering gardens. . . . Rockwell treats each vegetable like a treasure; even kids with aversions to veggies may be intrigued."--Publishers Weekly

"The short, declarative sentences are easily digested by the very youngest and will tempt burgeoning readers to test their skills. Best of all, children will surely be inspired to taste some of the produce the next time it appears on their plates. Delicious on its own, and it will pair well with other books about gardens, plants, and healthy eating habits."--Kirkus Reviews

"This gentle, colorful picture book explains, simply and accurately, how food gets from the garden and farm onto dining-room tables."--Booklist

"Vivid and detailed gouache and colored-pencil-on-paper illustrations fill each page, and many of the pictures are actually large diagrams with labels and captions that complement the facts described. Though the text is simple and straightforward, it's perfect for developing readers."--School Library Journal
