Lily’s mother makes everything an adventure, including her magical garden full of exotic and beautiful plants from all over the world. When Lily visits the Indian section of the garden, she discovers her own adventure. Through the power of imagination, the plants come alive and Lily finds herself in India. There she sees how the plants are used in Indian culture—a jasmine flower decorates a girl’s hair, a banyan tree becomes a chapel, and a neem tree offers up its berries in a New Year’s treat. Illustrated in the beautiful jewel-toned colors of India, this story comes with a glossary and additional reference pages for children to learn more about the topics presented in the book.

As an educator, I find this book to depict the many cultural findings that occur in India. Teaching different cultures is essential in today's society. This book depicts not only the Indian culture in a positve light, but in addition, does not sterotype the culture. Rather, Jemery Smith takes you on a journey through the country and explains many of the positive natural elements the country has to offer.
