About the Book

How does your garden grow? A wondrous New York Times bestselling picture book from Caldecott medalist Kevin Henkes.

A girl helps out in her mother’s garden, but in the garden of her imagination, there are chocolate rabbits, tomatoes as big as beach balls, flowers that change color, and seashells.
