Reviews

More about food security and sustainable farming closes this moving, informative entry in the publisher's CitizenKid line ...--Booklist
Though the text is not simple, the appealing design will support less able readers.--Kirkus Reviews
Taken at a literal level, this is a story of how sustainable farming practices can nourish families and the earth simultaneously. On a deeper level, it is about social justice and self-sustaining economies, which make this a book that can span a broader interest level. The stylized colored-pencil artwork is appropriately lush and idealized.--School Library Journal
