Rose's Garden by Peter H. Reynolds (hardcover)
"After traveling the world in her fantastic teapot, Rose is ready to put down roots. She sets about planting flower seeds in a neglected corner of a bustling city. And then she waits -- through rain, cold, and snow. Rose waits, never doubting that the garden she envisions will one day come to be."
"In this luminous picture book inspired by and dedicated to the late Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy, Peter H. Reynolds offers a heartwarming story that celebrates the true spirit of community and the power of nature, beauty and faith."
