Spit N’ Good Seeds by Barbara Wiese Harris (2014)

An engaging tale based on a true story originally written by the author for her niece. Morgan, the main character, interacts with the people and animals around her to create a watermelon patch so that she can enjoy spit n’ seeds with her uncle. The story is full of laughable twists that will delight the reader. The author, having studied botany, has craftily woven the life cycle of a watermelon into the plot and has further enhanced it with her illustrations. Grade Level: 3-4.
