Book Review


Caroline just moved into her new home on Meadowview Street. While exploring her yard, Caroline notices a lone wildflower. She tells her dad to spare the flower as he mows the grass. He agrees but then Caroline notices even more wildflowers. With string and sticks in hand, Caroline creates her own wildflower preserve. Soon the yard is overtaken by wildflowers and the mower is put up for sale. Then with her parents’ help, Caroline adds a pond. This addition attracts even more animals and insects into her yard. As time goes by, Caroline's efforts influence her neighbors to follow her example.
