About the Author

George Ancona (1929-2021) was an award-winning author and photographer of more than one hundred books for children, many about arts and culture. He wrote and photographed Boys Dancing: From School Gym to Theater Stage; Can We Help? Kids Volunteering to Help Their Communities; and It's Our Garden: From Seeds to Harvest in a School Garden.


The documentary-style narrative and uplifting photos put the joy of kinship, outdoor work, and growing food within reach of readers.
--Publishers Weekly

This fun and inspiring season-by-season description of a school gardening project could encourage others to repeat this extraordinary experience.
--School Library Journal

The clearly written text works seamlessly with the two kinds of color illustrations: Ancona's many effective photos record the garden experience over the course of the growing season, while the children's drawings (in crayon or marker) offer a fresh counterpoint to his engaging photos. An inviting introduction to school gardens.

With the growing interest in school gardens, this is a timely book. Listed resources, both books and websites, give more information. The full-color photographs are well-done, and illustrations drawn by students add further interest and visual appeal.
--Library Media Connection

Like these children and adults working in harmony with the earth's resources, Ancona's words and visuals exist in a beautiful balance.
--The Horn Book
