In this picture book watercolor and ink illustrations portray a family's garden as the children pick vegetables. As the children move throughout the garden they notice plant parts that are missing or damaged. When the children describe the damage each asks, "Who's been here?" The next page shows a close up of the culprit at work and names it. Children may be able to guess a few of the garden pests by the way the plant has been eaten.

I would recommend this book for a 2nd or 3rd grade class. In this information book, two children visit their garden to pick vegetables for their mother. They notice clues indicating the presence of animals. This is a great book for students because they can join in trying to find clues of which animals left. The students can be detectives and learn about probability.

Two children go to the garden to pick vegetables and find evidence of animals all around. Perfect for my four-year-old, and my one-year-old loved the realistic animal illustrations.

The conversation between the two kids seemed a bit stiff, but other than that, great book! Beautiful illustrations and fun idea.

This is another of George's picture books with the science theme. This time the brother and sister are sent to Mom's garden and begin to see evidence of the creatures that are or have been there. George's titles are a great way to introduce children to be receptive and aware of exactly what is in front of their eyes.

We really enjoy this book, pictures are great, very accurate and help us learn who may be visiting our garden when we aren't there. Although they left out the wild turkeys who enjoy our yard, I won't hold that against the author. Perfect for this time of year.

Children discuss how the family garden is overrun with varmints, their dog is little help against the pests. Instead of chasing the rabbit or any of the other animals, he prefers to eat a tomato.

Good introduction to the creatures that can ruin your crops.

If I get my grant, will be great for introducing common vegetable garden pests and reasoning for planting flowers with vegetables.
