Wonderful storytelling through its simple but meaningful narrative and pictures. Accessible to readers of all ages. Touches upon concepts of nature, family, relationships, and character. A beautiful classic.

Children of all ages will enjoy this story. A little boy is determined to grow a carrot despite everyone telling him he can't. Children will appreciate his persistence and his reward of a huge carrot.
