What's In Our Garden About

Publisher Summary

From the New York Times bestselling author of Be Kind comes an uplifting classroom tale about students who create a vegetable garden on their school’s rooftop. Millie has recently moved to a new city, from a place more than an ocean away. More than anything she misses the garden where her family used to grow food. Then one day she has an idea–the school has a fine flat roof, perfect for a garden. Soon her teacher and classmates are on board, but it takes more than ideas to build a garden. It takes supplies and hard work; it takes a lot of learning; and it takes a whole school–a whole community–coming together to help. And of course, it also takes a lot of waiting. But as Millie’s teacher Miss Mirales says, “Be patient. Good things take time.” From building the beds and planting the seeds to the first glorious harvest, here’s the story of a garden–and a girl–in bloom, and what it takes for a new place to finally feel like home.
