Thanks Itika Gupta - I'll take a look and see what might be good revisions. I want to make sure I'm understanding your suggestions - but it sounds like new ways to engage and interact throughout the story is desired? Things like, adding questions to encourage caregivers and kids to come up with their own ideas of what to plant. Also, within the illustrations, I'm hoping to suggest/encourage caregivers and kiddos to create their own sounds for each plant addition. Is this what your feedback is directed at?

Also a little background around the intention of the story, which I hope is coming across: The inspiration of this story comes from playing this game with my 2.5 year old at bedtime. We plant a garden on his back each night. He gets to suggest what plants he wants (sometimes its strawberries, other days it trucks...!) and some days we introduce new plants he has never heard of or tasted - like, Rutabaga or Parsnip, or new vegetables that he might encounter soon (ie: green beans - that we will be serving tomorrow) and he enjoys practicing that new sound and is excited to see that new item in person.
