"The book provides a healthy dose of completely digestible information on growing and nurturing living things; it's also a zesty introduction to vivid, abstract art." - Publishers Weekly, of Growing Vegetable Soup Color explodes from Ehlert's bold, beautiful cut-paper collages like seeds from an over-ripe pod. Three gift-sized editions of her beloved hardcover picture books- Eating the Alphabet (with a glossary of fruits and vegetables), Planting a Rainbow (a concept book about colors and different flowers), and Growing Vegetable Soup (includes a recipe!)-are packaged in a lovely slipcase with a 16" x 22" flower-garden poster. It's a springtime extravaganza!
A Caldecott Honor illustrator with a distinctive cut-paper collage style, Lois Ehlert has created many celebrated picture books that reflect the world around her, including Leaf Man, Market Day, In My World, Fish Eyes, and Red Leaf . She lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
