Can one little girl transform a neighborhood? With a seed of an idea and helping hands from neighbors, a girl’s dream to clean up an abandoned city lot grows into something much larger. Cynthia Platt’s light prose is brought to life by artist Olivia Holden’s beautiful pastels in this inspiring story of hope and community.
Cynthia Platt edits and writes children’s books, and is the author of two picture books, Pandamonium and A Little Bit of Love. While she loves to read, write, bake, and hike, she is not a very good gardener. You can learn more about her at cynthiaplattbooks.com.
