This intriguing book was about a girl who shadowed her neighbor planting his garden. He planted a fig tree and after the season he buried it. Snow fell and later that spring he dug it up and put it in the ground. A true magician because new leaves appeared. ( )

Entertaining picture book about a neighbor with a "magical" way with plants, in particular a fig tree. Great for young children that might be learning about plants or planting a school garden.

Every spring the little girl who lives next door to Rosario helps him plant vegetables. One spring, Rosario plants a fig tree, which soon bears sweet purple fruit. But when fall comes, he bends it over and buries it in the ground. What kind of magic is Rosario performing? The next spring, on planting day, the little girl and Rosario make holes for tomato plants, push in stakes for beans and plant other vegetables. Then Rosario begins to unearth the buried fig tree. It looks dead, for sure. But one hot sunny day, a fresh green leaf appears. Inspired by her next-door neighbor, Charis Wahl has written a sweet and simple story about a little girl’s first-hand experience with the magic of gardening. The story is complemented by Luc Melanson’s gently humorous illustrations.
