A Child's Garden is a great story about how one little seed can spread hope. The illustrations are the shining light in this story. All of the pictures are in black and white except for the little plant that the boy sees growing. This boy lives on the poorer looking side of the barbed wire fence. There is rubble and broken down houses everywhere. One the other side of the fence, the buildings look strong and stable. This boy tends to his plant and it grows huge as a grape vine. It covers the barbed wire fence and children come to play on it. There is beautiful coloring on the pages with the vine across the fence. The guards come and rip the vine out. They throw it into a ditch across the fence. It grows over there and reaches the fence on the other side after a little girl waters it. Some of the seeds survived on the little boy's side of the fence. The two vines merged. This represents the unity of people on those sides. The little boy hopes that one day the fence will be down again.
This book has great symbols for such a simple story. The vine growing back after being ripped out of the ground and the vines intertwining are representations of the fight that people have to push on. The illustrations made this book wonderful. ( )

I'm not sure what the time period this book is written in but the fence and soldiers tells me that it might be during the Holocaust. My favorite part of this book is that as the garden grows, the pictures in this book go from black and white to colorful then back to black and white when it was ruined. I think this book has a powerful message because each time the garden was ruined it kept coming back and brought so much joy. I think the vine is a symbol, a physical representation of the two sides coming together. Even though this book kind of has a lot going on the language is simple enough for younger audiences and I think they could gain a lot from this book. Definitely one of my favorite reads of the semester. ( )

This book uses seeds and roots and particularly the way in which they spread to illustrate to children how to have hope in hard situations. When a little boy notices a sprout among rubble, he nurtures it until it grows big enough to cover the fence separating his town from the next. When soldiers tear his plant down, he is heartbroken but quickly notices that some new seeds have begun sprouting on both sides of the fence. A powerful line in the book reads, "Roots are deep and seeds spread.". I think this sends a great message to children to be brave and hopeful. ( )

In "A Child's Garden" a boy is surrounded by rubble and ruin but finds a shoot growing. For me, this shoot is a symbol of his hope. The boy finds the shoot and takes very good care of it. He waters it and gives it love, he watches it grow tall and strong. sadly one day the soldiers come along and tear his shoot, now a grapevine, down and destroy everything. When reading the story, a reader can see that in the same way the boy cares for his hope and it builds and gets stronger. Once his hope is strong the soldiers come along and tear it down. The story then continues with the seeds of the vine creating more shoots and growing again. In the same way, the boy's hope starts to grow again and this time "the soldiers [can] return, [because] roots are deep, and seeds spread". The story was beautiful, it showed a child surrounded by ruin, rubble and poverty but it never broke his hope of a better life. ( )

I liked reading this book a lot. This book is about a boy who finds hope and beauty in a tiny green plant in a pile of rubble. There is a wire fence and soldiers in the story that separate the ruins from the non ruins. However, the single plant found in the ruins brings together the people on both sides of the fence.This book symbolizes to readers that people can always come together regardless of their differences.
