The Bear's Garden by Colleen
In this lyrical picture book, one little girl imagines and grows a beautiful garden in an empty lot in a city.
With the help of her stuffed bear, she imagines a place to grow, a place to play, and a place to love—and soon her garden becomes just that.
The Bear’s Garden is a testament to how imagination and dedication can transform communities and create beauty for everyone in unexpected places. It’s inspired by the true story of a community garden in Brooklyn that local residents beautified themselves and named after a teddy bear found in the weeds.
