PICTURE BOOK PICK OF THE WEEK

THE CURIOUS GARDEN
by Peter Brown;  Little, Brown and Company (2009)








A delightful story about a curious boy who discovers some struggling plants growing along the abandoned railroad tracks.












Under his tender care, the little garden flourishes and spreads until the drab city and its dwellers are transformed.




I love that he sings to the plants. And that the garden takes on a life of its own, wanting to explore the rest of the city.


This beautifully told and illustrated story is a perfect Earth Day celebration selection.
