The Lovereading4Kids comment

A great introduction to the delights of fruit and vegetables. Sidney lives in a busy city and never bothers with anything fresh to eat. But a visit to his Granny soon turns all that around. Sidney learns to love eating carrots, beans, tomatoes – anything and everything fresh from the garden. And he learns how to help them grow. Best of all, Sidney takes his new habit back to the city in a very special way!

Synopsis

Grow Your Own! by Esther Hall

Sidney and his mum live a busy life in a busy city. Dinner time is announced by the ping of the microwave, comes out of piping-hot boxes, and is eaten off knees. The closest Sidney ever comes to a vegetable is the mushroom on his pizza...and he usually picks that off. But when Sidney goes to visit Granny in the countryside, eating his greens suddenly gets a whole lot more interesting! This is a beautifully illustrated book about the joys of growing (and eating!) your own food.
