This book would be a good book to read aloud for young kids because it talks about community life and could be a good start to learning about Social Studies at the beginning of the year. Students can learn about different things in the community.
The story can be enjoyed by all ages, but for the older students, it is especially useful in initiating discussion about how change can be accomplished. There are even details about how to go to City Hall and get granted the use of a vacant lot as a community garden, which is a great way to have what was read put into action.

Summary: It begins with a warm wind late at night, sighing through the hemlock trees. . . . It's springtime at last!
