A Child’s Garden: A Story of Hope

By Michael Foreman 2010 Walker Books Ltd ISBN: 978-1406325881

For a boy in the midst of poverty and war, nurturing a tiny green plant shoot has far reaching effects in this simple, universal fable of hope and connection.
A little boy’s home has been reduced to ruin and rubble, and now a wire fence and soldiers separate him from the streams and hills he once visited with his father. But the boy sees a tiny speck of green peeping up toward the sunlight, and he quietly begins to coax it with water and care. A beautifully illustrated tale of healing and renewal from a world-acclaimed children’s book creator, A Child’s Garden pays gentle tribute to the human spirit.
