Ah the joy and power of connections! In this rich, loving story an African-American father and daughter set out to create a garden. Now they live in the city so their garden will not be the plot of ground out in the backyard. But that doesn't mean they can't imagine and work together to discover just the right little wonders of nature that will brighten a window box and make their garden dream come true.
Together, and that is the all-important thing, father and daughter find the window box, the dirt and the plants that will become a lovely birthday surprise for mom.
You can read this story for the journey on the bus, or for the joy of being together, or for the fun of choosing. You can read this story for the giving. Whatever your reason, the gifts that will come back to you will be reassurance, comfort, joy, fun and the wonder of a father and daughter who love each other with whole hearts.
