Summary
Perfect for fans of the Caldecott Honor Book The Gardener by Sarah Stewart and David Small, here's a heartwarming spring picture book about gardening and friendship.

Every day, Honey tends her garden, thinning the lettuces, pulling up beets, and even singing to the kale. (Honey says if you listen carefully, you can hear the kale singing back!) Laurel, the little girl who lives next door, likes to help, weeding the rows, washing vegetables under the pump, and gathering speckled eggs from the chicken coop. But one day there is a FOR SALE sign in Honey's front yard. Honey's mother is sick, and she is moving away! What will happen to Honey's garden? And what will Laurel do without her friend? Here is a touching story that beautifully illustrates how friendship-just like a garden-grows.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* This lovely story celebrates generativity, a difficult concept for children, but made vivid here through a garden that continues to flourish after its owner moves. According to the author's note, this book is based loosely on a Talmudic story in which a man is questioned about why he plants a carob tree when he may not live to harvest the fruit. His response: Just as my ancestors planted for me, so I plant for my descendants. In this update, a little girl is fascinated by her next-door neighbor, Honey, a middle-aged woman who works hard in her backyard garden, rain or shine. The two become friends, and the girl inadvertently learns to care for the plants as she observes Honey's hard work. Soft pen-and-ink illustrations capture scenes of the friends having a vegetable-filled feast with the girl's mother, stargazing in the garden, and getting speckled eggs from the chicken coop. The idyll ends when Honey must move away to care for her mother. Honey reassures the distraught girl that the garden, if tended, will continue to thrive without her: It belongs to everyone. The story's resolution, where the little girl shows her new neighbors how to care for the garden including the tree she planted with Honey is tremendously satisfying. This tender tale will easily take root in readers' hearts.--Fletcher, Connie Copyright 2017 Booklist"
