I like this story a lot, about how the gardeners make their vegetable garden and how they store the food for winter. There's a song at the end of it, too.

Unfortunately, the gold tape that binds the book is very poorly glued on and is already peeling off after only a few months (and we haven't read it *that* often, either).

This is a Golden Book Classic. I especially like the song at the end of the book.

Margaret Wise Brown wrote hundreds of books and stories during her life, but she is best known for Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny. Even though she died nearly 60 years ago, her books still sell very well.

Margaret loved animals. Most of her books have animals as characters in the story. She liked to write books that had a rhythm to them. Sometimes she would put a hard word into the story or p...more
