A little girl moves to the city of Detroit and misses her garden. Will planting a few seedlings in a nearby vacant lot help her feel at home in the city? This sweet story takes a look at the joys of urban gardening and includes a Detroit Fact Page and Family Gardening Activity.
Keri’s heroine embraces the simple joy of growing her own food. May we all be as wise.
