Up, Down and Around

by Katherine Ayres
Illustrated by Nadine Bernard

Published by Candlewick Press, 2007
28 pages
ISBN: 0763623784

Ages 2-4

Two preschool-age children are busy in the garden in Katherine Ayers’ breezy picture book highlighting the concepts of “up,” “down,” and “around.” Digging, planting, and watering quickly give way to the garden’s bounty: “Corn grows up. Carrots grow down. Cucumbers climb around and around.” The playful narrative is complemented by Nadine Bernard Westcott’s bright, whimsical illustrations depicting a host of mouthwatering vegetables, a plethora of wiggly, wide-eyed garden creatures, and a light-skinned boy and a brown-skinned girl taking obvious delight in the fun.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
