For many Vancouver-area children, growing a garden in the backyard is fun, and pulling a carrot out of the ground is a treat. But when 11-year-old Maria, part of a struggling farming family in Honduras, is left in charge of the garden, her family’s very survival depends on her work. When her teacher introduces her to methods of sustainable farming practices, however, she can begin to transform and improve the plight of her family and her community. Through rich illustrations and tales of her experiences in Latin America, Katie Smith Milway shows children ways they, too, can be part of “good gardens” at home and abroad. Suitable for grades 2 to 5. $17 / $8.50 for student groups (thebookpile)
