The Curious Garden
The Curious Garden by Peter Brown is one of our new picture books, located on the new shelf in the children's department. It is about a young boy named Liam who decides to grow a small garden in the midst of a new cement filled city. Before he knows it the whole city is becoming greener as his garden grows and his efforts inspire others to grow their own gardens. The pictures are busy and fun to look at again and again. This is a great book about spring, gardens and making a difference in the environment. Other picture books about helping the environment and individuals making a difference include: Miss Rumphius, Uno’s Garden and Planting the Trees of Kenya: The Story of Wangari Maathai.
