As we get closer to GREEN GREEN‘s publication date, we’ll feature gardening-related info, activities and crafts that kids will really “dig,” and ways families can help our world stay GREEN GREEN.
About the book…
What happens when you dig the ground and plant seeds? A garden grows! What happens when you dig the ground and set in steel beams and concrete? A city grows and grows. And what will happen to that abandoned lot squeezed between two buildings?
GREEN GREEN celebrates the spirit and adventure of making something grow, and Grow and GROW. Gardens can sprout up anywhere – and lots of community gardens are popping up all over cities. See what a little digging can do!
