City Green

Right in the middle of Marcy's city block is a littered vacant lot, "like a big smile with one tooth missing." Then one day she has a wonderful idea: instead of growing flowers in coffee cans, she and Miss Rosa will plant a garden in the vacant lot this year. There are plenty of doubters, but once Marcy and Miss Rosa start their garden, it’s amazing how it brightens the neighborhood and brings all their neighbors together.

Celebrate the 25th anniversary of City Green — the environmentally and community-conscious classic that shows the wonderful things kids can do when they put their minds to it — with this new edition! Kids will love the empowering story and the warm illustrations, full of colorful plants and friendly faces. Plus, for those inspired to start their own community garden, a page of tips provides a place to start!

"Watercolor-and-pencil vignettes depict an overwhelmingly brown city landscape enlivened by a colorfully clad cast of ethnically diverse neighbors and, finally, a bountiful rainbow of plants. The kindly expressions of the various gardeners provide added warmth, making DiSalvo-Ryan's fictional block a nice place to visit. A helpful page of instructions for starting a community garden is also included." — Publisher's Weekly
