The Curious Garden

The Curious Garden by Peter Brown is a great book to read to children.  Liam lives in the city and finds some unattended but growing plants.  He begins to take care of those plants, and with time, the city changes.  Brown's story is enhanced his illustrations.  I like to check this book out each spring to share with my students.   Do you have any favorite books about spring?

Not a book about spring necessarily, but I do like a book about community gardening that may touch on similar themes: Seedfolks by Paul Fleischman. A well told story with some keen insights into human behavior.
