Broccoli Rob and the Garden Singers by John S. Armstrong
Illustrated by David Miles
Broccoli Rob and the Garden Singers is an inspiring children’s book with beautiful illustrations that takes the reader through the struggles and personal growth of Broccoli Rob, a shy stalk of broccoli who loved to sing. After several days of heavy rain, Rob was able to persuade his vegetable friends to come together and sing to encourage the sun to come out behind the clouds and shine bright, despite the other vegetable’s initial reluctancy towards Rob’s plea.
However, once the garden singers began to sing, Broccoli Rob was so shy even his vegetable friends can’t hear his beautiful singing, let alone the sun. Rob found himself needing encouragement of his own from his garden friends in order to sing loud and proud, and that day he discovered a very important lesson from his experience.

Broccoli Rob and the Garden Singers by John S. Armstrong is a cute and quirky story about a big, bright beautiful garden filled with a colorful assortment of veggies, including a fun and optimistic character named Broccoli Rob who loves to sing about the wonders of his lovely green home. But Rob has kept his glorious singing a secret from the rest of his garden friends in fear they might make fun of him.
After a very rainy day, Broccoli Rob tries to sing a song to bring back the sunshine, but no matter how hard he sings it just doesn’t seem to work. So he works up the courage to ask his garden friends for help to bring back the sun. However, his other veggie friends are full of mixed emotions. Finally they all decide to give it a try and soon begin to sing beautifully together. Then to their delight, the gorgeous warm sunshine suddenly returns.
