Product description

Review

"An optimistic tale that manages to be both encouraging yet realistic about how to do some good in your very own backyard."--Kirkus Reviews

"DiSalvo-Ryan's warm text is enhanced by her soft pencil-and-watercolor illustrations depicting a diverse neighborhood drawn together by a community project."--ALA Booklist

"Genuinely warm... a pleasant, positive story of cooperation."--School Library Journal

"One girl's motivation and cheery attitude buoys this picture book about urban renewal and community action. The kindly expressions of the various gardeners provide added warmth, making DiSalvo-Ryan's fictional block a nice place to visit."--Publishers Weekly

From the Inside Flap

Right in the middle of Marcy's city block is a littered vacant lot. Then one day she has a wonderful idea that not only improves the useless lot but her entire neighborhood as well. DiSalvo-Ryan's warm text is enhanced by her soft pencil-and-watercolor illustrations depicting a diverse neighborhood drawn together by a community project.--Booklist.--Kirkus Reviews
