Anywhere can be a farm - all it takes is one small seed, and someone to plant it. In this celebration of green fingers and the thrill of nurturing new life Phyllis Root delivers a read-aloud rhyming mantra for planting your very own farm, while G. Brian Karas's joyful city illustrations sprout from every page. You might think a farm means fields, tractors and a barnyard full of animals. But you can plant a farm anywhere you like! A box or a bucket, a boot or a pan - almost anything can be turned into a home for growing things. Windows, balconies and front steps all make wonderful spots to start. Who kws what plants you may choose to grow, and who will come to see your new garden?
