My First Book of Growing Food
Introducing Terra Babies at Home, a new board book series that presents plants, animals, and the environment to early readers from the intimacy of their home and helps them connect to the natural world.
My First Book of Growing Food is a beautiful introduction for babies and toddlers to the benefits of growing food, helping them to develop a connection with the natural world. Like other titles in the earth-friendly series Terra Babies at Home, this book is made with FSC materials and nontoxic inks, and it is recyclable.
Simple and quirky text pairs with charming art by Åsa Gilland (The Perfect Shelter) in this book where future nature lovers will learn about growing simple foods in a friendly and easy way while being introduced to basic concepts of the environment.
Tots will learn that lettuce and tomatoes are easy to grow; herbs like rosemary, mint, and cilantro grow happily next to a bright window; and yes, tots can grow their own strawberries. And that's not all: The book shows readers how to start their own herb garden in twelve easy steps!

Åsa's dad was a mapmaker who'd spend summers outdoors detailing aerial photos, while she would pass time in the car, drawing creatures and folks entangled in perplexing drama. That is why Åsa is still pretty good at drawing in a moving car. Åsa is the author of The Perfect Shelter (starred review from Kirkus).
