I found this handsome hardcover in this Little Free Library in North Chelmsford MA, while dropping off some books of my own, and was delighted to have another release copy.

It's from a series of children's books about various ecosystems, illustrating the habitats and the creatures that live there. This one follows a grandmother and grandchild as they plan, cultivate, and harvest, from the first muddy aftermath-of-winter scenes to the last harvest and first frost. We see the labor involved - of the people and of the various insects, birds, and animals that share the setting (and sometimes compete for the produce!). There's a section at the end with facts about each of the creatures shown in the illustrations, and a list of further reading. And the book is making me itch to start gardening!
