'It's a wonderful book which my daugher loved and started reading immediately. It's colourful and educational, yet written in a very simple and easy to understand language. It is split in a few sections, each one offering interesting advice about planting your own garden and caring for it. The story is simple and a lot of kids could project themselves into the book character, Sophie.' -- Green Kiddie blog 'If your children think they would like to have a vegetable garden this spring, How Does My Garden Grow, written and illustrated by Gerda Muller, shows how gardening can be an adventure with feasts to behold as vegetables mature and reach edible size. The story is accompanied and bordered by all sorts of instructive, labeled drawings and lists of all things gardening, very entertaining and informative.' -- Vermont Country Sampler 'This warm story of a child's summer at her grandparents' French country farm lovingly describes basic gardening techniques. As Sophie and Granddad John work together, city girl Sophie learns how to prepare a plot and then plants seeds, waters them, and watches the seedlings grow into productive plants. She helps harvest and eat the peas, radishes, and green beans that come from her garden instead of a supermarket. Fresh colours abound in the illustrations of Sophie, her grandparents, and her new friends. Creatures important to gardeners -- birds, butterflies, bees, rabbits, bats, moles, worms, slugs, snails, and grubs -- are beautifully pictured, as are the vegetables harvested throughout the summer. Sophie helps with autumn garden chores and late harvests as well as winter preparations during weekend visits. When spring comes again, Sophie creates a garden on her balcony with a friend. This combination of engaging story and gardening information will delight and teach readers.' -- Frances E. Millhouser, School Library Journal 'The illustrations of vegetables are easy to recognise and name -- and the recipes simple and look delicious!' -- Kindling, The Journal for Steiner Waldorf Early Childhood Care and Education 'A bright book to teach children where our food comes from.' -- Juno, Spring 2014

Like all of Gerta Muller's books I've read, this one incorporates pictures of characters of different races, ages and abilities even without diversity being a central theme of the story.
It is written/translated in British/European English, so there are just a few words or terms that aren't exactly equivalent to North American terms. For example, what I would call "beets" are labelled "beetroot", and there's a few tools that are mentioned that are less common or go by a different name in North America. This is not in the least problematic in understanding the book, and has in fact lead to a couple interesting conversations with my preschooler about how language is different in different places.
