The Curious Garden

It's that time of year, when our thoughts are turning to gardening.  Our spring bulbs are up but we still have so much to do in our garden. 

We just bought this lovely book for a birthday present for an awesome 3 year old.  It's been read repeatedly in our house for the last few weeks.  It's one I don't mind reading over and over because the text is short and the pictures are magnificent.

A curious boy finds plants growing and decides to help them along. Soon his "curious" garden is spreading and the city is transformed into something remarkable.  It was inspired by the Highline park in NYC that's on an old unused elevated train line. (How I wish Philadelphia would copy this!)

The garden was especially curious about old, forgotten things.
