What's City Green About

Publisher Summary

Celebrate the 25th anniversary of City Green–the environmentally and community-conscious classic that shows the wonderful things kids can do when they put their minds to it–with this new paperback edition. This picture book is an excellent choice to share during homeschooling, in particular for children ages 5 to 7 who are ready to read independently. It’s a fun way to keep your child engaged and as a supplement for activity books for children.”An optimistic tale that manages to be both encouraging yet realistic about how to do some good in your very own backyard.” –KirkusRight in the middle of Marcy’s city block is a vacant lot, littered and forlorn. Sometimes just looking at it makes Marcy feel sad. Then one spring, Marcy has a wonderful idea: Instead of a useless lot, why not a green and growing space for everyone to enjoy?With her warm, hopeful text and inviting illustrations, DyAnne Disalvo-Ryan shows how a whole neighborhood blossoms when people join together and get involved.–ALA Booklist
