The Curious Garden by Peter BrownThe Curious Garden,by Peter Brown is a fantastically drawn book about a boy who, through an interest in a small patch of greenery, causes his entire city to turn green. The message is clear, but not too preachy: Care for the environment and good things will happen.

The Curious Garden is rated Buy Two! (One for You, One for a Friend)

As a parent, this is a rather enjoyable book, I may like it even more than my kids. Peter Brown may have had better selling books more recently with the Lucille Beatrice Bear series (Children Make Terrible Pets and You Will Be My Friend), but this book from 2009 is good for all seasons and should probably last for a while. I highly encourage you to get a little curious.
