Favorite Children's Books - Second Post

Thank you for all the enthusiasm for my first post about In the Town All Year 'Round!  Here is my next book!  The Curious Garden

This book, about a boy who turns his dull city into a magnificent garden, has the most beautiful illustrations. It is my son's favorite book - my son who plays army everyday :)  The garden that he makes starts on an abandoned railroad and resembles the High Line in New York City.  It would be a fun to read this prior to visiting the High Line. I am actually thinking of planning a special visit there for my son now because I think it would bring this book to life! Happy reading and more soon….
