This book provides a great text-to-world connection through this simple story, about bigger issue of some farmers being unable to produce enough food for their families, and even less food to sell. The book is set in the hills of Honduras where a small girl and her family live amongst many other poor farmers. This chapter book (each chapter is short and in one page of length) shows how the families began to learn new ways to help their garden grow. Eventually the farmers on this hillside were able to overcome hunger, and finally have enough to feed their families. The text integrates many Spanish words into English written story line. The back of the book has a page to help translate the words used throughout the book, and also informational text about the global garden.
