Being able to buy fruit is something we take for granted, but what if we had to grow our own?

In the fourth book of this quartet, a little girl helps Granny Pip as she plants fruit bushes, feeds them with fertiliser, prunes and then harvests. Growing fruit is hard work, but eating it is delicious!


Reading Zone Q&A with Deborah Chancellor


Praise for this book:

'This bright and bold picture book demonstrates a home garden's seasonal cycle and the journey a keen gardener goes through to grow their own fruit ... a useful resource for early years settings, particularly when learning about foods, sustainability and gardening.' The School Librarian

'Enlightening and entertaining' Lancashire Evening Post

'Charming and informative … With bright and exciting illustrations, each spread informs and advises children about how to grow and look after a garden.' School Reading List

'Clear illustrations and spare text ensure that this is accessible to young children and could be shared aloud too. In a similar approach to A Seed Grows there is a helpful information section at the end of the book highlighting the needs of the growing fruit and the importance of eating food that is grown closer to home.' A Library Lady
