By Gwendolyn Hudson Hooks
Illustrated by Shirley Ng-Benitez
Six Pack: forthcoming
Five friends from diverse backgrounds learn how to navigate common childhood challenges, new experiences, and the world around them in the realistic and kid-friendly Confetti Kids early chapter books.
In this story, Lily still misses having a backyard with flowers and a vegetable garden. Then she remembers the public garden in the neighborhood and tries to convince her friends gardening is fun. Her friends are a little reluctant—it sounds like a lot of waiting and work. But in the end, they enjoy learning what a plant needs to grow, and that patience can sometimes yield something delicious.
