A vegetable garden!

This colorful picture book helps children understand vegetable gardening — from planting to harvesting.

"Mushroom in the Rain" by Mirra Ginsburg. Adapted from a Russian story by V. Suteyev.

Caught in the rain, an ant takes shelter under a tiny mushroom.

Soon, a wet butterfly does the same — followed by a drenched mouse, a dripping sparrow and a rain-soaked rabbit.

How can the ant let the others in when there is barely room enough for one?

But as the rain pours down, they somehow manage to squeeze together and share the tiny shelter.
