Anywhere Farm is aptly authored by Phyllis Root with beautiful, retro styled illustrations by G. Brian Karas. With the assistance of soft pencil crayoned pictures, the story explains that the only things needed to have an anywhere farm are soil, sunshine, water and a seed. It goes on to tell the reader where they can have their anywhere farm, from a cup to a balcony and who will visit. It shows that anyone can have their own anywhere farm, nowhere is too small and with soil, water, sunshine and care, anywhere farms can be everywhere.

This is a lovely book to share with your pupils, perhaps before you embark on creating your own 'anywhere farm' at school. With its matt cover, cream pages and brown text alongside the delightful illustrations, the book itself looks ecofriendly and certainly provides a great message for your pupils.
