How does your garden grow? A wondrous New York Times bestselling picture book from Caldecott medalist Kevin Henkes.
A girl helps out in her mother's garden, but in the garden of her imagination, there are chocolate rabbits, tomatoes as big as beach balls, flowers that change color, and seashells.
"This intimate exploration of a child's burgeoning imagination hits every note right. Just plain perfect." --Kirkus (starred review)
"With its adroit look at a child's colorful imagination, My Garden is as fresh and inviting as spring after winter." --The Horn Book (starred review)
"Imagination grows and spreads from the fertile pages of this book to the minds of young readers. A must for every library." --School Library Journal (starred review)
"Even as the story elevates the wonders of nature into the realm of the fanciful, it reminds readers to appreciate everyday flowers and soil." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)
