This cumulative story follows one year in Isabella's garden from planting, to sprouting, to harvest, to winter. Mixed media illustrations give the book a folk art feel with thick paint lines, bold colors, and textile prints. Personification, strong verb choices (both present and past tense forms), and sound elements make this an outstanding mentor text for vocabulary enrichment and poetry exploration.
