How can Adam bring the green warmth of home to his new urban world? An inspiring fable from Michael Foreman about making friendship grow.
Adam feels alone in the strange new city. He misses his old friends and the colors of his faraway home. It's fun to build snow animals with children in his new neighborhood, but Adam's concrete surroundings still make him wish for something more. So when a teacher gives him a few seeds, it plants an idea in him--an idea that could transform his gray world forever.
"Adam missed the faraway place where he used to live." With some new companions, recent immigrant Adam transforms a barren but friendly city into "a city of gardens." The story lacks any tension; instead, this is a lesson about how the world might be if everyone was his or her best self. The soft illustrations are as warm as the gentle fable.
