Book of the Week: The Gardener by Sarah Stewart, illustrated by David Small
In this book… Lydia Grace is sent to live with her grumpy Uncle Jim during The Great Depression. Uncle Jim is a baker, and while Lydia doesn’t know much about baking, she does have a green thumb, and she puts it to good use! Her one goal: to make Uncle Jim smile.
Recommended for: ages 4+ (this is one of my very favorite picture books!)
