Amara's Farm (Where in the Garden? #1)
Reading Level: K − 1st Grade

A young girl searches for pumpkins on her farm in this joyful celebration of cool-weather fruits and vegetables, from the new Where in the Garden? series.

Amara is hosting a potluck for friends on her farm, and her snacks won't be complete without pumpkins. She's searched and searched, but she's grown so many plants that she needs help finding them. What do we know about pumpkins? They're large, round, and orange--and, wait a minute, is that a pumpkin? No, that's an apple. Where, oh, where could those pumpkins be?

Author JaNay Brown-Wood uses simple, playful text to guide young readers through Amara's farm, exploring the unique characteristics of the apples, cauliflower, eggplant, okra, persimmons, and more that grow there.

Little gardeners will compare, contrast, and hunt for visual clues that eventually lead to the pumpkins and a fun potluck with Amara, her grandparents, and her diverse group of friends. Artist Samara Hardy brings this multi-layered story to life with vivid, cheerful illustrations created from layers of hand painted ink and watercolor texture. Back matter includes yummy molasses pumpkin bread recipe for little chefs to try.

Featuring a diverse cast of characters, the books explore gardening and farming during every season of the year.
