With beautiful illustrations reminiscent of the artwork that won Tomie dePaola the Caldecott Honor for the original Strega Nona, this celebration of harvest and gardening will make the perfect addition to any Strega Nona collection. In the spring, Strega Nona precisely prepares her garden and plants her seeds. Her helper, Big Anthony, thinks she is too strict and plants his garden less precisely. When they harvest their vegetables, they have TOO MUCH so they share it with the townspeople.
This funny yet thoughtful fall book can be used in speech therapy to address social/emotional issues like doing things your own way and helping others. It is also great for noticing character expressions and illustrations as well as for /j/, /str/ and /g/ sounds!
