Description

Many people who live in the city do not have space for gardens. But they still want the fresh food, flowers, and herbs that come from a garden. So, they plant gardens in pots or planters. Sometimes they form a team and find an empty lot to plant their gardens in. People use patterns to plan how best to use their space. This is a great way for people to live in the city and have a beautiful garden. What would you plant in your city garden? 32pp.

Publisher: Arbordale Publishing ISBN: 9781607181026

Children facing cancer--whether their own, a family member's, a friend's, or even a pet's--will find help in understanding the disease through this book. A young boy discovers his dog's lump, which is then diagnosed with those dreaded words: "It's cancer." The boy becomes a loving caretaker to his dog, who undergoes the same types of treatments and many of the same reactions as a human under similar circumstances (transference). Medical writer and award-winning children's author, Sherry North artfully weaves the serious subject into an empathetic story that even young children can understand.
