Abstract:
The curious garden: One boy's quest for a greener world ... one garden at a time. A little boy named Liam discovers a struggling garden and decides to take care of it. As time passes, the garden spreads throughout the dark, gray city, transforming it into a lush, green world. An enchanting tale with environmental themes and breathtaking illustrations.

Johnny Appleseed: John Chapman was his real name, but almost everyone remembers him by his legendary name - Johnny Appleseed - the man who sprinkled apple seeds and planted trees all across the Midwest.

Miss Rumphius: As a young girl, Alice dreams of traveling to faraway places, finding a home by the sea and making the world more beautiful. Inspired by a true-life story, Miss Rumphius shows us how we can all make the world a more beautiful place.

First the egg: Which came first? The chicken or the egg? A book about transformations -- from egg to chicken, seed to flower and caterpillar to butterfly. An entirely fresh and memorable presentation on the concepts of growth and creativity.
