I am already dreaming of spring and thinking about what to plant in our garden beds this year and this is the perfect book to tide me over. A young girl in the city shows readers that a garden can happen even when living in a high-rise apartment. Simple rhyming verse follows this little one as she lovingly picks out flowers, brings them home, transplants them into a window box and presents them to her mom for her birthday. What a wonderful spring book to get young children excited about planting seeds and creating gardens in whatever space they can find!
