The Gardener. Forced by the hard times of the Depression, Lydia leaves her family to go to the unfamiliar city to stay with her Uncle Jim, an unsmiling baker. While traveling by train, Lydia writes to Uncle Jim, admitting she knows nothing about baking, but a lot about gardening. In Lydia's subsequent letters to her Mama, Papa, and Grandma we discover just what Lydia thinks of the city, subdued Uncle Jim, and learning to bake bread. David Small's pen and ink drawings with their softly hued watercolor washes fill the large pages with detailed views of Lydia's adventure. Where in the big gray city can Lydia ever grow all the seeds and bulbs her Grandma sends her? Will Lydia ever coax a smile from Uncle Jim? Read Lydia's charming letters to find out how one determined slip of a girl brightens her city corner of the grim 1930's world.

teaching citizenship - This visit to Marcy's city neighborhood will inspire both urban dwellers and their rural counterparts with the positive message that kids can make wonderful things happen if they put their minds to it. - Citizenship
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.

As the sun rises slowly over the farmlands, subtle signs of spring begin to emerge. From thin streams of melted snow-water snaking down the windowpanes, to newborn lambs nestled in a mound of sun-warmed hay, to red-budded maple trees swollen with rising sap, the beauty of a world awakening from winter is revealed in stirring detail. Lyrical prose by Steven Schnur is in perfect harmony with Stacey Schuett's warm paintings, celebrating the arrival of spring and the energy and renewal it brings.
Summary: It begins with a warm wind late at night, sighing through the hemlock trees. . . . It's springtime at last! As the sun rises slowly over a sleeping farm, small signs of spring begin to appear. From a roofline curtain of dripping icicles to newborn lambs nestled in a mound of sun-warmed hay to pale shoots of field grasses peeking up through melting snow, the magic of a new season is evoked in stirring detail. ~ Spring Thaw - Steven Schnur, Stacey Schuett
