Flower Garden

by Eve Bunting, Kathryn Hewitt

Follow the progress of a little girl and her father as they purchase “a garden,” and board the bus to carry it home. The pansies, tulips, daffodils, geraniums, and daisies are lovingly planted in a window box, and the candles on the cake are lighted—just as Mom walks in the door to find her daughter, her husband, and her birthday surprise.

    “An urban African-American girl and her father buy plants, potting soil, and a window box at the supermarket, ride the bus to their apartment, and put together a colorful gift for the child’s mother. Rhyming verse carries the brief story, while wonderful, warm, full-color illustrations present scenes from novel angles, and depict a loving family with a sense of intimacy, sincerity, and joy.”School Library Journal
