Book Review

As an elementary school teacher, finding quality children's books is my passion, and when I find a great one - I want to share it! I recently discovered The Curious Garden, by Peter Brown. Modeled after the recent restoration of New York City's Highline Park, this lovely story is about a boy who finds an abandoned railroad and decides to plant seeds to make his neighborhood more beautiful. His efforts - though small, are noticed, and slowly the garden takes a pay it forward type effect, as his once dirty city slowly becomes more green and full of life. My students really enjoyed this story, the illustrations, and seemed inspired by it's message how even one kid can truly make a difference. Check it out!images/barnesandnoble
