"White backgrounds and minimal text make this a strong option for sharing with groups as well as with individuals...Sure to engage listeners by calling for their active responses, this is a top choice for collections serving the youngest readers and nature lovers." -- School Library Journal "Matheson brings her interactive approach...to a garden setting, giving readers a chance to take part in the process. ...Matheson sets the action against broad, white backdrops with just a hint of soil at the bottom edge, creating maximum contrasts as three flowers grow and blossom." -- Publishers Weekly "The simple text moves across both pages as the seeds grow into beautiful flowers...The illustrations become more plentiful and colorful as the flowers grow, mirroring the naturally occurring miracles of real gardens." -- Booklist
