Synopses & Reviews
and#8220;An urban African-American girl and her father buy plants, potting soil, and a window box at the supermarket, ride the bus to their apartment, and put together a colorful gift for the childand#8217;s mother. Rhyming verse carries the brief story, while wonderful, warm, full-color illustrations present scenes from novel angles, and depict a loving family with a sense of intimacy, sincerity, and joy.and#8221;--School Library Journal
A springtime favorite, now in a lap-sized board book edition.
A girl and her father go to the store to buy plants, soil, and a window box for a flower garden that's going places: from the store, to the shopping cart, on the bus ride home, and up the stairs to become aand#160;colorful birthday surprise for the little girl's mother.
Follow the progress of a little girl and her father as they purchase "a garden," and board the bus to carry it home. The pansies, tulips, daffodils, geraniums, and daisies are lovingly planted in a window box, and the candles on the cake are lighted--just as Mom walks in the door to find her daughter, her husband, and her birthday surprise.
