This rhyming picture book explains that anyone can grow a farm anywhere--all you need is soil, sunshine, water, and a seed. You can plant your farm in a pot ten stories up on a balcony, in a cup on your windowsill, or in an empty lot. There are some humorous suggestions, such as planting in a horn or a crate on a bike, but what the author is suggesting is that by thinking outside the box, it's possible to plant your own little garden wherever you are. A perfect read aloud for children just in time for spring to get them excited about working in the garden.
