Miguel searches for sunflowers to take to his community garden party in this vibrant, diverse exploration of gardening and healthy eating. From the Where in the Garden? series. Miguel is throwing a party at his community garden for all of his friends, and he needs help searching for sunflowers to complete the celebration. What do we know about sunflowers? They're tall with petals and leaves--and, hold on, is that a sunflower? No, that's an artichoke. Where, oh, where could those sunflowers be? Can you help Miguel find them in time for his party? The second title in JaNay Brown-Wood and Samara Hardy's Where in the Garden? series stars an adorable young Latino exploring his garden while comparing, contrasting, and hunting for sunflowers among a multitude of warm-weather fruits and vegetables like apricots, artichokes, asparagus, mushrooms, spinach, and more. Toddlers and preschoolers will delight as they discover the wonders of fresh produce, and after Miguel finally finds the patch of tall, yellow blossoms, a festive celebration ensues at the community garden where a diverse group of friends and Miguel's two fathers feast on all of the fresh fruits and vegetables. Back matter includes a delicious recipe. The Where in the Garden? series features a delightfully diverse cast of toddlers, each exploring simple fruit/vegetable identification. With a reliable, easy-to-follow narrative structure, visual clues are introduced, explored, and reviewed alongside jubilantly illustrated interiors. Perfect for early childhood and elementary education units on agriculture, farming, gardening, and healthy eating. Also available from JaNay Brown-Wood and Samara Hardy: Amara's Farm
