A charming full-colored family picture book, The
Grapes Grow Sweet is the first book written for children
about grape growing. Four-year old Julian is finally old enough
to take part in the grape harvest on his family's vineyard.
Through Julian's wonder, The Grapes Grow Sweet offers a
captivating glimpse of growing up on a vineyard, and the
development of the grape from bloom to harvest.
Through vivid illustration, the ecology of the vineyard comes
alive, showing the insects and other critters among the vines.
This book has definite appeal to anyone looking for an artful and
educational gift about the wine county experience.
Arts educator Lynne Tuft, a favorite Napa Valley artist,
teamed up with Tessa DeCarlo, a local writer who appears
frequently in the New York Times & Wall Street Journal, to
create this keepsake.
Lynne Tuft's colorful book illustration have also been
reproduced as a collection of frameable prints to accompany the
The Grapes Grow Sweet will inspire children
to write, draw and express themselves by celebrating the everyday
experiences that make up their own lives.
