Last spring this family planted so many seeds and all summer long they've been watching the plants come up and bring them wonderful things to eat. But, out there in the garden among the peas and the tomatoes, is a mystery vine. It's growing and growing. What could it be? (Pumpkins!) This book includes recipes for roasting pumpkin seeds and making Pumpkin Apple Bread. Then, it adds the fun of being "a plant spy" and watching your own seeds grow. You can learn all about how the roots and leaves develop just by watching. You can even make a "book vine." Great read aloud for storytime with wonderful follow up ideas.
