I’m popping in on a Thursday to share the excitement for a wonderful new picture book.
THANK YOU, GARDEN
By Liz Garton Scanlon
Illustrated by Simone Shin

Publisher: Beach Lane Books / Simon & Schuster
Date of Publication: March 3, 2020

From the author of the Caldecott Honor–winning picture book All the World comes an exuberant, lyrical celebration of the plants—and people—that grow and thrive in a busy community garden.
A community garden unites children and neighbors in this celebration of all the things that grow there, from flowers and fruits to friendships. In the spirit of her Caldecott Honor¬–winning picture book All the World, this ode to friendship, community, and working together for a better world will have young readers gathering their friends young and old to plant something together.
