The Garden Song – English Vegetable Vocabulary

Summer brings us a lot of tasty and healthy vegetables. It’s one of interesting topics for young English learners to discover. That’s why I made my best to present it in an attractive and children-appealing way. This catchy song and funny cartoon characters will help children learn easy and quickly how vegetables are called in English.
