"The book provides a healthy dose of completely digestible information on growing and nurturing living things; it's also a zesty introduction to vivid, abstract art." -"Publishers Weekly," of "Growing Vegetable Soup" Color explodes from Ehlert's bold, beautiful cut-paper collages like seeds from an over-ripe pod. Three gift-sized editions of her beloved hardcover picture books--"Eating the Alphabet "(with a glossary of fruits and vegetables), "Planting a Rainbow "(a concept book about colors and different flowers), and "Growing Vegetable Soup "(includes a recipe!)--are packaged in a lovely slipcase with a 16" x 22" flower-garden poster. It's a springtime extravaganza!
