" Forty-one authors and illustrators of books for children share their gardening experiences. Includes gardening activities and recipes. " said.

" Kevin, if you're reading this, it has your name written all over it! This collection of tidbits from 41 different children's book authors and illustrators is a great way to get to know those people a little better, and a fantastic way to teach our students the value of treasuring the planet we live on! " said.

"I had the great pleasure of meeting Michael J. Rosen, the brains behind "Down To Earth," at a recent booksigning. Rosen explained how he approached 41 children's book authors and illustrators to send him their thoughts or artistic impressions of their favortie plant, be it a flower, vegetable or weed. All contributors donated their work, with all profits benefitting Share Our Strength, the leading antihunger organization in the United States. My favorites include Denise Fleming's musings on the proliferate zucchini and David Catrow's discussion of the dandylion. A wonderful book that supports a wonderful cause." said.

"Down to Earth is a great addition to my library. As an adult I thoroughly enjoyed it and related to many of the authors' memories. Touching, humorous, creative. Both entertaining and practical (activities are outstanding). A great gift, a great book to share with a child -- to do the activities together, to discuss the various authors' experiences. Both young and not so young would find value in this book. My 28 year old son and his wife will love it. I'm so glad I stumbled upon it. As an added bonus, proceeds benefit Share Our Strength, the nation's leading antihunger organization." said.

"This is the kind of book I longed for as a child. I'm no longer a child. No matter. This book sits proudly among my other books--something I pull out now and again when I need some verbal refreshment. The words and colorful illustrations from a variety of authors and illustrators soothe and comfort as we wend our way through different plants and vegetation--from creeping ivy to the branches of an old apple tree.
This book makes for great bedtime reading for young children as well. Great job!
