Santa in the City
Blank Image _ Clear Button
Deja's friends try to convince her that there's no Santa -- and if he did exist he definitely wouldn't visit their city. Deja's mom assures her Santa is real and cleverly answers all her questions like where Santa parks his sleigh and how he gets in if there is no chimney. Favorite line, "magic always finds a way."

One Little Lot: The 1-2-3s of an Urban Garden
Blank Image _ Clear Button
A community comes together to clean up an abandoned lot. They build raised beds, fill them with composted dirt, tuck in some seeds and shower them with water. The new flowers help the once hungry bees return. Then kale, collards, kittley and carrot start to grow. We love the way the city is depicted in this book and it reminds us of fun times in our own community garden. If you haven't volunteered in a garden, try it -- just once - you'll have a blast and the produce tastes amazing! The book ends with the importance of honey bees and how to make your lot bee-friendly.
