The Curious Garden by Peter Brown
A tiny patch of plants along an abandoned railroad track thrives under Liam's attentive care, and a dreary city is eventually transformed. A delightfully illustrated story with a seek-and-find element. Can you find red-headed Liam on every page?

An inspirational look at the life of Kate Sessions who transformed a barren park in the heart of San Diego into the leafy, green oasis it is today. Nobody ever imagined so many trees could thrive in the middle of the desert. But Kate did. Beautifully illustrated by Jill McElmurry.

Recommended by Carrie, children's librarian at the Parman Branch.
