Up, Down, and Around

author: Katherine Ayres
illustrator: Nadine Bernard Westcott

From seeds dropping into soil to corn bursting from its stalks, from children chasing butterflies to ants burrowing underground, everything in this vibrant picture book pulses with life — in all directions! Sprightly illustrations set the mood for a rhythmic text that follows nature’s course to a feast of backyard bounty.

"An inviting introduction to the wonder of plants, food, and gardening. . . . Will be a favorite of teachers, students, and home readers alike." — Kirkus Reviews

illustrator’s comments:
Nadine Bernard Westcott has illustrated more than a hundred books for children. Up, Down and Around... reminds her of the garden her husband plants every year. "It starts out OK in the spring, but by the end of the summer, the squash, ornamental gourds and pumpkins have taken over!" She lives on Nantucket Island, USA.
