Alice and her family plant their garden together. Many plants, animals, and insects join them in their efforts. Alice's family depends on the garden for their food chain. The garden is cared for each day until the food is finally harvested in the fall. The garden rests in the winter and a new growing process begins again in the spring. Did you know that every food chain begins with a plant and that all the food chains in the garden comprise a food web?

Soar into the Solar System to witness the first Favorite Planet Competition, emceed by none other than the former-ninth planet, now known as dwarf planet Pluto. The readers become the judges after the sun can't pick a favorite and the meteors leave for a shower. Who will the lucky winning planet be? Could it be speedy-messenger Mercury, light-on-his-feet Saturn, or smoking-hot Venus? Readers learn all about each planet as Pluto announces them with short, tongue-in-cheek facts. Children will spend hours searching the art for all the references to famous scientists and people of history, space technology, constellations, art, and classic literature.
