In this sweet little book, a girl helps her mother in the garden. She lets her imagination run wild and wonders what it would be like if she had her own garden. She would have flowers that could change colors, chocolate rabbits, and even a big jelly bean bush. In her world, the garden would be perfect. Maybe one day she will have the garden that she imagined. If I were reading this to my class, I would ask the children to write a paragraph about what would be in their ideal garden and let their imagination run wild. ( )
