The Curious Garden

The Curious Garden by Peter Brown
Little, Brown Books for Young Readers (April 2009), $17

With all the talk of getting back to the garden, this book is the perfect kick start for kids who dream of being green. In Peter Brown's book, just one small kid and one small garden ignite a transformation of a dreary steel-and-concrete city. Follow redheaded Liam's adventures as he changes his world.
