Zucchini / meeny / miney / moe. / Plant a seed / and watch it grow.” George Shannon’s breezy collection of poems for young children celebrates things that grow and ways to play. The bountiful pages are brimming with verse about vegetables, fruit, and flowers, as well as outdoor games and activities (there’s badminton and croquet, and of course digging, planting, and picking). Artist Sam Williams’s playful illustrations feature an abundance of children and animals and expressive garden bounty (the fruits and vegetables have faces). CCBC Category: Poetry.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
