Flower Garden
By Eve Bunting

Review by: Karen Shaw

     Traditionally, when we think of a garden, we think of large places for planting.  But Eve shares with us the gift of beauty found in small places. The book takes us on a journey with a young girl and her father.  We find them at the grocery store purchasing flowers.  We follow them through the checkout line, down the street, on the bus, up the apartment stairs to their own front door.  We watch as they plant the flowers together in a window box.  We learn the names of each flower and see the delight on the girl's face as the box is placed in the window.  Anticipation mounts as candles are lit on a birthday cake and a surprised mother comes through the door.  She discovers her gift of a garden and gives the little girl a hug.  Books showing life in an apartment are hard to come by.  This one is made even more beautiful by the wonderful illustrations by Kathryn Hewitt.
