Won't you be my neighbor?
THE PATCHWORK GARDEN (PEDACITOS DE HUERTO) by Diane de Anda with illustrations by Oksana Kemarskaya. Pinata Books, 2013.
A girl and her grandmother decide to take a small patch of dirt behind the local church and plant a small garden. As the vegetables grow and attract the attention of other residents of the neighborhood, the idea of patches of gardens in empty places catches on. Soon, a patchwork garden thrives in the neighborhood. Text is in Spanish and in English. Great book to share with kids for Earth Day or to talk about communities.
