Genre: Realistic Fiction and Informational

Setting: The book takes place outside in a garden. It is beneficial to the story because it is about taking care of flowers. The natural elements outside (rain and sun) are also incorporated into the story and how the flowers grow.

Review: A little girl is given the tools she needs to start her own garden. This book is a good example of realistic fiction because it relates to real life and the story seems real. It is also slightly informational because in the cover of the book, there are pictures of different flowers with their real names.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0440417368, Paperback)

In this gentle picture book, a young girl begins her garden with a bit of earth, good tools, and seeds. Then she weeds and waters and waits. As the seedlings grow and then bud and blossom, Maggie Smith's illustrations grow as well. The first pictures are open and spare, but they grow richer and more colorful as petunias and poppies and zinnias burst forth with each turn of a page. A celebration of a gardener's nuturing spirit, this winning book is filled with wise advice for cultivators of both actual and metaphorical gardens.
