Arriba, Abajo y Alrededor

By Katherine Ayres
Illustrated by Nadine Bernard Westcott

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

Los pimientos crecen hacia arriba. Las papas crecen hacia abajo. Y alrededor, las calabazas se enredan, se enredan y se enredan. De semillas que caen al suelo hasta el maíz que parece reventar, ¡todo en este huerto está en movimiento! From seeds dropping into soil to corn bursting from its stalks, from children chasing butterflies to ants burrowing underground, everything in this vibrant Spanish language picture book pulses with life— in all directions! Sprightly illustrations set the mood for a rhythmic text that follows nature’s course to a final feast of backyard bounty.

  • A Spanish-language paperback of this rhythmic, garden-themed story.
  • With a theme of planting and growing, this is a perfect book for spring.
