I haven't really got that into the book yet, but so far I like it. I enjoy how they switch off point of views throughout each chapter. I think the basic storyline is that even though people live different lifes and have different cultures, a little thing such as a garden can bring a communtiy together. The one little girl starts a chain reaction and has the whole community join in on this garden. My favorite activity this week was making flowers in Mr. Howards class. I liked this activity because the flowers turned out really pretty and cool looking. I learned a lot about nature this week. It was really fun.
