    Marvelous

    A wonderful, uplifting, and hopeful fable about perseverance and the difference one person (and one garden) can make in the world. Beautiful artwork and simple, lyrical prose. I especially like how the character of the garden itself is brought out in the story. Highly recommended.

    Completely Inspiring for Children of All Ages!

    Bravo Peter Brown! This book inspires children of all ages to open their eyes & hearts to the natural beauty growing in the most unexpected of places! The illustrations capture the imagination and inject humor into a very important message of loving & nuturing our Mother Earth! Makes a fantastic birthday or holiday present...pair it with a little spade, watering can & a few seed packets!
    PS-And it's printed on beautiful recycled paper!

    Makes you want to know what kind of a "curious garden"?

    Help children and adults alike to learn to make where they live a more beautiful place to live. Teach children how to plant and grow a garden and that it can be fun and rewarding.

    What a precious story with a great moral

    I bought this book as a gift for two of my grand children (7yrs. and 2 yrs) The oldest loved the story and could read it out loud with little difficulty. Since she is very much into being "GREEN", and caring for our Mother Earth, she found it inspirational.

    The youngest one loved the pictures and enjoyed the story as well when read to her. It is now part of the night time ritual of bedtime. They have only had the book a few weeks, but both know it by heart

    This book has actually brought out their creativity in gardening as well. Its a sweet precious story and we truly are enjoying over and over and over again

    lovely

    This is a lovely book to introduce your child to gardening and the concept of community. The illustrations are delightful. It inspired us to search our neighborhood for "curious gardens".
