As the story begins, narrator Nancy Wu catches listeners' attention with her emphatic, "No spinach!" Clearly, young Sylvia does not care for spinach dishes. And wouldn't you know it--when her class gets a classroom garden project underway, Sylvia is the one in charge of the spinach. She grudgingly follows directions but grows despondent as everyone else's seeds sprout. Will she ever come to care about her spinach? Wu narrates at a leisurely pace and lets the excitement of the unfolding garden developments carry the story. As Sylvia, Wu delivers an authentically childlike tone. Listeners will delight in the enthusiasm of the conclusion. Gentle music and tips for gardening complete the production. A.R. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2018]
