“There once was a city without gardens or trees or greenery of any kind. Most people spent their time indoors. As you can imagine, it was a very dreary place.” The Curious Garden is a delightful and intriguing book about a young boy, Liam, who ventures out one day down the line of an old railway. He discovers some sad looking plant life and decides to be the “gardener.” At first his attempts seem feeble, but he keeps trying, and improving, and eventually achieves amazing results. Not only does the old dreary railroad start to brighten up, but Liam’s care and attention affect the whole city. Peter Brown wrote and illustrated this book which will be a joy to share with young children of all ages. See this book listed in our catalog
