Today is Water a Flower Day. We can’t think of a better way to celebrate this life-giving occasion then with a very special picture book titled; The Bear’s Garden.
Check it out!
A little girl sees an empty lot in her neighborhood and begins to dream of what it could be.
…a place to GROW
…a place to PLAY
…and a place to LOVE.
With the help of a tiny sprout and her faithful Teddy Bear, the little girl’s dream spills out onto the street, where it takes form.
After the proper introductions are made (“how do you do?” ) the little girl loves and nurtures her growing sprout…
“I believe in you,” she whispered every morning and every night.
Then one day the little girl has to leave. But before she goes, she puts a very special friend in charge of watching over her little sprout.
How will her bear fare in the gardening department?
Find out in The Bear’s Garden.
