I think that this book is really boring.I don't like how Paul Fleischman changed the point of view every chapter. It confuses me. It's like one story to the next. I think it is the connection of the community. Before they didn't communicate at all. I like Kim because she started the whole garden. I think the activities were really fun! I liked making flowers out of cans with Mr. Howard. But all the activities were super fun and it helped me learn how to make things out of recycled stuff.
