American Grown

American-grown-book-cover“American Grown” by Michelle Obama
Nonfiction – 4 stars

As a casual gardener myself, I loved learning that the White House has its own garden and how they’ve used it – to inspire children, build community (organically), provide food for themselves and to local organizations and as gifts to important visitors. It’s peppered with a number of other voices and endearing stories like the fig tree that disappeared. It’s a wonderful easy read that probably was better in book form for the pictures than as a audiobook.
